8.6.1edit

Bug fixes and enhancementsedit

  • Fixes a bug that prevented Osquery results from being viewed in Kibana when using the Osquery Manager integration with Elastic Agent. Upgrade to Elastic Stack version 8.6.1 and Elastic Agent 8.6.1 to apply this fix to your deployment (#34250).
  • Fixes a bug that impacted the way Osquery results were displayed in Lens and Discover (#148260).

8.6.0edit

Known issuesedit

  • When using the Osquery Manager integration with Elastic Agent, Osquery results aren’t properly written to Elasticsearch and, therefore, cannot be viewed in Kibana (#34250). We recommend that Osquery users skip Elastic Stack version 8.6.0 and upgrade to Elastic Stack version 8.6.1 or later when available.
  • Investigation guides for some prebuilt rules may not render correctly if they include an escaped character (such as \"). To resolve this, update your prebuilt rules once you receive a rule update prompt on the Rules page (#2447).
