Stop Datafeeds

The stop datafeeds API enables you to stop one or more datafeeds.

A datafeed that is stopped ceases to retrieve data from Elasticsearch. A datafeed can be started and stopped multiple times throughout its lifecycle.

Request

POST _xpack/ml/datafeeds/<feed_id>/_stop

POST _xpack/ml/datafeeds/<feed_id>,<feed_id>/_stop

POST _xpack/ml/datafeeds/_all/_stop

Description

You can stop multiple datafeeds in a single API request by using a comma-separated list of datafeeds or a wildcard expression. You can close all datafeeds by using _all or by specifying * as the <feed_id>.

Path Parameters

feed_id
(string) Identifier for the datafeed. It can be a datafeed identifier or a wildcard expression.

Request Body

force
(boolean) If true, the datafeed is stopped forcefully.
timeout
(time) Controls the amount of time to wait until a datafeed stops. The default value is 20 seconds.

Authorization

You must have manage_ml, or manage cluster privileges to use this API. For more information, see Security Privileges.

Examples

The following example stops the datafeed-it-ops-kpi datafeed:

POST _xpack/ml/datafeeds/datafeed-it-ops-kpi/_stop
{
  "timeout": "30s"
}

When the datafeed stops, you receive the following results:

{
  "stopped": true
}
