8.2.1edit

Bug fixes and enhancementsedit

  • Allows preconfigured connectors to be used with cases (#130372).
  • Adds pagination to the Table tab on the Alert details flyout to fix a performance issue on the Timelines page (#131358).
  • Fixes sorting issues that were related to unmapped fields (#132190).
  • Fixes a bug in the Filter In, Filter Out, and Add to timeline investigation inline actions that caused incorrect results to be retrieved (#132251).
  • Enhances performance by improving calculations for the top count function and hover action in data tables (#131363).

8.2.0edit

Known issuesedit

  • On macOS versions before 12.4, if Elastic Endpoint is used with other products that monitor or manage network traffic (such as antivirus programs, firewalls, or VPNs), users might experience network connection issues. To resolve this issue, upgrade to macOS 12.4 or later.
  • Indicator match rules cannot use the .items-* system index and will encounter execution errors when run. Avoid using indices populated from value lists for indicator match rules (#133457).
  • The matches operator in the Add Rule Exception flyout does not work because wildcard matches are not supported for rule exceptions. Using the matches operator will cause rule exceptions and their associated rules to fail. You can restore failed rules by deleting unsupported exceptions and refreshing the rules (#136340).

Deprecationsedit

The following endpoints are deprecated (#129448) and will be removed in a future release. They will remain active for at least the next 18 months:

To avoid breakage, we recommend using the bulk rule actions API instead for similar bulk actions. You can also use the create, update, and delete rule APIs to manage rules individually.

Breaking changesedit

There are no breaking changes in 8.2.0.
