Eventtype 'windows_account_created' does not exist or is disabled.


I've given read permissions for macro, app, eventtype, everything I can think of, to the role and/or everyone. This search keeps failing for all users in the role. It works fine for me as an admin. It even fails with the same message if I add the user to the power role along with the defined role.

event_sources eventtype=windows_account_created

It returns results for just the event_sources macro. But including eventtype windows_account_created shows no results along with:
alt text

I've exhausted any of my ideas. Thoughts?

If you go to Settings->Event types and set the permissions for windows_account_created to Global, it should fix the problem.
