Search Guard Suite 52.4

Release Date: 2021-10-14

This release brings support for Elasticsearch 7.15.0. Also, it fixes a bug with the saved object migration in Kibana.

If you are also using Kibana, it is essential that you also upgrade the Search Guard Kibana Plugin to 52.0.0. Otherwise, saved object migration in Kibana will not properly work.

Bug Fixes

Kibana Saved Object Migraton

When updating Kibana from 7.11.x to 7.13.x, 7.14.x, there could be an error similar to the following during the Kibana startup process:

Error: Unable to complete saved object migrations for the [.kibana] index. Please check the health of your Elasticsearch cluster and try again.
Unexpected Elasticsearch ResponseError: statusCode: 400, method: PUT, url: /.kibana_7.14.1_001?wait_for_active_shards=all&timeout=60s 
error: [mapper_parsing_exception]: Failed to parse mapping [_doc]: unknown parameter [enabled] on mapper [params] of type [flattened]

This release of Search Guard fixes that problem; saved object migrations will no run again without an error.

The bugfix requires that also the Search Guard Kibana Plugin 52.0.0 is installed.
