Enterprise Security Threat Intelligence - Lookup population?

Hi,

I'm starting with ES Threat Intelligence and am wondering, how threat intel data is populated to the KV stores used in the correlation search "Threat Activity Detected".

As a simple example I manually added an entry to local_email_intel (which is of course enabled).
Now I'm expecting the email address to appear in the KV store threatintel_by_email, which is used in the threat matching search for email. But threatintel_by_email is still empty, although I waited for a while for background jobs. I can't find the entered email address in the Threat Artifacts dashboard as well.

What is my mistake here? What kind of background job do we need/wait for to make my entry available for threat detection?

Thanks in advance 🙂

It looks like disabling and re-enabling the local_email_intel source via the management interface does the trick. But I don't think this should be the way to go 🙂
