Splunk Search

What privileges are needed to use tstats summariesonly=t?

We have accelerations turned on and at 100% for a number of our datamodels. I like the speed obtained by using |tstats summariesonly=t. If I remove the summariesonly=t, then the results are the exactly the same, but the search takes 10 times longer.

I would like other users to benefit from the speed boost, but they don't see any results unless I put them in the Admin group. Is there another privilege that I need to grant them to make summariesonly=t work? They already have read access to the datamodel and root object.

I found a work-around by adding allow_old_summaries=t. I'm just confused as to why summariesonly=t only works without Admin by adding allow_old_summaries=t.

Confirmed the same requirement in my environment - docs don't shed any light on it. Hoping to hear an answer from Splunk on this.

Yup, found another one here. Running Splunk 6.3.5 with ES. What I found is that I have the Admin role, but it works from some apps (like the main ES app, and some of the related ES apps, but not from Search or other custom apps.)
