Known Issueedit

Affecting all Beats

  • During setup the Beat does not load the data stream. Thus, when running the Beat with a user that does not have enough privileges, publishing fails with the following error: action [indices:admin/auto_create] is unauthorized for user [publisher] with roles [publisher], this action is granted by the index privileges [auto_configure,create_index,manage,all]. The workaround is to either install the data stream manually using the following call: PUT /_data_stream/{beatname}-8.1 or to give manage permission on the data stream {beatname}-8.1 to the publishing user temporarily. 30647 31048
