Customer have created SOC l1 and SOCl 2 custom roles, SOC l1 has the inherited role ES analyst, ES user and user.

SOC l2 inherited role SOC l1 and few additional capabilities. There was no issue with 4.7.X version. SOCl2 person can edit the notable event and investigated all logs etc. After upgrade SOCl2 started facing issue, user unable to edit the notable event.

In customer test environment once customer remove our custom role from SOCl2 and add ES analyst, ES user and user role then it start working. What customer see custom inheritance of role is not working. Can assist to understand what is the reason behind this?

It is a bug SOLNESS-17285 with the ES version 5.1.1, where the cannot handle multi-level inheritance.

This bug target to be fix in next release 5.3.

The workaround for the customer will be that SOC2 inherits from es-analyst directly rather than from SOC1.
