I just completed a rolling upgrade of our ES and Kibana (PRO) cluster, from 6.6.2 with the 1.17.5 versions of each plug-in, to now 6.7.1 with 1.18.0 versions. Everything appeared to go fine, and after the Kibana upgrade, as usual, my currently-open Kibana windows told me at the next refresh attempt that the back-end was newer than my loaded front-end code, and so I was to refresh them, which also worked. I am pleased that in the rewritten Scala version of LDAP, the ha keyword “ROUND_ROBIN” is no longer misspelled with an extra R, and it continues to be nice and stable, talking to all our three domain controllers all day.
However, in this version, the magenta button that shows my logged-in username and allows me to intentionally log out (clear my auth cookie) has moved over to the far right lower corner of the window, hovering over the results of my queries or visualizations, instead of the far left corner at the bottom of the left nav bar, under the Collapse button. So it’s kind of in my way now, occasionally obscuring results. This is not a showstopper, just weird. I didn’t quite notice whether this happened at the upgrade of Kibana itself or the RoR PRO plug-in to Kibana, because naturally I did it all in a sequence, per node. But it also happens even in an Incognito window or when I switch from Chrome to Safari on my Mac, so I don’t think it’s just a matter of some leftover cached CSS files.
Anyone else notice this? Is there something I can do about it? Thanks.
