Breaking Changes in 5.5.2edit

  • When X-Pack security is enabled, user authorization for creating reports is controlled by the xpack.reporting.roles.allow setting in the kibana.yml, which defaults to ['reporting_user']. When they are assigned to the built-in reporting_user role, users no longer have write access to the underlying X-Pack reporting indices in Elasticsearch. If you use custom reporting roles, the write privilege to the indices must be removed and the role must be added to the xpack.reporting.roles.allow setting. See Reporting Settings in Kibana.
