Known issuesedit

Unable to load Stack Management > Rules due to corrupted rule definitions

Releases 8.5 and 8.6 have a bug that corrupts rules when you update API keys or manage snooze schedules. In particular, it affects tracking containment rules and Elasticsearch query rules with KQL or Lucene query types. Releases 8.7 and beyond do not include this bug (fixed in #153370).

This known issue causes "unable to load rules" messages to occur in Stack Management > Rules. To temporarily work around the problem, copy the rule content (params, name, tags, actions) for the problematic rules, delete the rules, then recreate them. For more details, refer to Elasticsearch query rules and Tracking containment rules.
