Error While PDF Reporting

While I click on Share -> PDF Reports on kibana I see the following ERROR:

[2024-05-21T09:59:07.004+00:00][ERROR][plugins.reporting.runTask] Error: ReportingError(code: unknown_error) "Max attempts (3) reached for job lwg83g0f000753347b3o74jt. Failed with: EACCES: permission denied, mkdtemp '/usr/share/kibana/data/chromium-XXXXXX'"

What could be the issue?


Kibana does not have the necessary permissions to create temporary files in the /usr/share/kibana/data directory

Check the permissions of the /usr/share/kibana/data directory.
Change the owner of the directory: If the owner is not the kibana user, you can change it by running the command chown -R kibana:kibana /usr/share/kibana/data
