I noticed that after upgrading to splunk 6.4, my user with a custom role cannot see the "export" button on the bottom of dashboards , or on the top of search results. While my admin see it.

Figured that out
Those users were member of the custom role "interns".
and it does not inherit from other roles

And the role does not have the capability "exportresultsis_visible"
When we compare in the authorize.conf defaults, this capability didn't exist prior to splunk 6.4.* .
and the setting is allowed by default to the role "user".

To allow the export, I updated my custom role to add the capability.

Hi @yannK,

I have a similar issue. I have "exportresultsis_visible" capability getting imported well from another user role to my user role.
But still am not able to see export to pdf button in my dashboard page.
