What are the permissions / criteria required for users to be able to see the 'Report Acceleration Summaries' page?

Right now, even users with the 'Accelerate Searches' role do not get the option in the settings drop-down.

This is running 6.2.1 with search head clustering.

It works for myself as an admin.

Can your users see any other Settings page links? If they cannot see other admin-only Settings pages that you have access to, it could be that you need to expand their access in the local.meta file as described here: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.2.2/Security/Addmanagementaccesstocustomroles

Note that in this topic, what is referred to as "Manager" is now called "Settings" in the product.

Per our docs

Your role must have the schedule_search and accelerate_search capabilities.

I created an 'accelerated user' role which has both of these capabilities.

Said users can create accelerated searches however they cannot see the link to the Report Acceleration Summaries page.

Not sure, but I wonder if the power role is required for the link...

In ./etc/apps/search/metadata/default.meta I see:

[manager/summarization]
access = read : [ power ], write : [ admin ]

So maybe you could add to local.meta

[manager/summarization]
access = read : [ accelerated user ], write : [ admin ]

? But that is a wild stab in the dark
