i am using Sideview SearchControls module to export data from table into csv.
It works fine when i am the admin but it doesnt work for any other roles.
The file gets exported for other users but they get the following error message in the csv.
Can anybody help me to find the appropriate role for this capability?
<msg type="FATAL">User 'guest' could not act as: rkbask_na_p</msg>
That's very strange. The feature is certainly tested to work with power- and user-level users, and our testcases still pass at least with Sideview Utils 3.3.2 on Splunk 6.2.1
I'm exporting results as a user-level user now and I can't see any problem.
It sounds like "rkbask_na_p" is another user account, and you are using distributed search, such that the guest account is somehow mapped to "become" the user rkbask_na_p" on one of your configured search peers, yet that runs into trouble at runtime.
Of course how that could manifest only when results are exported... i have no idea! Maybe we have a bug where "warn" messaging supercedes the actual results when we're writing out the response.
