Unable to create/load Markdown widgets in Kibana 5.2.1


(Manikanth Reddy) #1

We have recently introduced roles and permissions based on index patterns. When I try to create/load Markdown widgets in Kibana, its throwing security exception even though I have Admin level access on .kibana index. When I debug the issue using chrome's developer options, I could see that, it's trying to get field_stats for the default index pattern(I dont have admin access on this index pattern) and its throwing the security exception. If I change the default index pattern, its working fine. But we have multiple applications which are using our Kibana dashboards. Could you please help me to fix this issue. thanks in advance.

Hi @Manikanth_Reddy,

this is a known issue which should have been fixed in Kibana 5.4 via the PRs https://github.com/elastic/kibana/pull/9658 and https://github.com/elastic/kibana/pull/11012.
