Known Issues

2020-09-17 – v.2.3.0 – Worker Groups menu tab hidden after upgrade to LogStream 2.3.0

2020-09-17 – v.2.3.0 – Cannot Start LogStream 2.3.0 on RHEL 6, RHEL 7

Problem: Upon upgrading to v. 2.3.0, LogStream might fail to start on RHEL 6 or 7, with an error message of the following form. This occurs when the user running LogStream doesn't match the LogStream binary's owner. LogStream 2.3.0 applies a restrictive permissions check using id -un <uid>, which does not work with the version of id that ships with these RHEL releases.

id: 0: No such user
ERROR: Cannot run command because user=root with uid=0 does not own executable

Fix: Planned for LogStream 2.3.1.
Workaround: Update your RHEL environment's id version, if possible.

2019-03-21 – v.1.4 – S3 stagePath issue on upgrade to v.1.4+

Problem: When upgrading from v1.2 with a S3 output configured, stagePath was allowed to be undefined. In v.1.4+, stagePath is a required field. This might causing schema violations when upgrading older configs.
Workaround/Fix: Reconfigure the output with a valid stagePath filesystem path.
