Issue:
After creating a watcher and a variable under it in MCS, I cannot assign the variable to the watcher.
The watcher appears grayed out and is not editable.
 
Environment:
This issue was discovered using UIM 8.51 and MCS 8.50, but the information in this article is generally applicable to all versions of UIM / MCS.
Resolution:
After creating the profiles/watchers/variables, restart the MCS probe (deactivate/activate). This should allow those fields to become editable once again.
