Breaking changesedit

Breaking changes can prevent your application from optimal operation and performance. Before you upgrade to 7.14.0, review the breaking changes, then mitigate the impact to your application.

Changes audit event terminology

Details
The terminology has changed for audit events logged by the alerting framework’s rules client when CRUD operations are performed.

The following audit actions are renamed:

  • alert_create is now rule_create
  • alert_get is now rule_get
  • alert_update is now rule_update
  • alert_update_api_key is now rule_update_api_key
  • alert_enable is now rule_enable
  • alert_disable is now rule_disable
  • alert_delete is now rule_delete
  • alert_find is now rule_find
  • alert_mute is now rule_mute
  • alert_unmute is now rule_unmute
  • alert_instance_mute is now rule_alert_mute
  • alert_instance_unmute is now rule_alert_unmute

The terminology in the audit messages now references rules instead of alerts. For example, User is creating alert [id=${ruleId}] is now User is creating rule [id=${ruleId}].

For more information, refer to #102263.

Impact
When you upgrade to 7.14.0, Kibana automatically uses the new terminology. No action is needed.

Refactors alerts authorization client

Details
The alerts authorization client has been refactored to be more generic. Kibana uses the existing alerting feature privilege model to provide all and read privileges to rules and alerts.

For more information, refer to #99078.

Impact
When you upgrade to 7.14.0, Kibana automatically reflects the changes. No action is needed.
