Configuring the Default HTTP Timeoutsedit

All HTTP requests in watcher (e.g. used by the HTTP Input and Webhook Action) are associated with two timeouts:

Connection Timeout
Determines how long should the request wait for the HTTP connection to be established before failing the request.
Read Timeout
Assuming the connenction was established, this timeout determines how long should the request wait for a response before failing the request.

By default, both timeouts are set to 10 seconds. It is possible to change this default using the following settings in elasticsearch.yml:

watcher.http.default_connection_timeout: 5s
watcher.http.default_read_timeout: 20s
