Index lifecycle error: security_exception: action [indices:monitor/stats] is unauthorized for user [template_manager]

According to Kibana, the wait-for-shard-history-leases step failed when trying to delete an index due to ILM policy. The template_manager user/role is one I recently created for the purpose of automating updates to the templates and ilm policies I'm using in this cluster. What permissions am I missing? I tried adding index * with permission monitor, but the error didn't go away (not sure how quickly I should expect it to go away? It seemed like other ilm errors went away within a minute or two of fixing permissions).

I ended up deleting that index by hand, and no other index has had that same error. I still don't understand what went wrong, though.
