Known issues for Splunk Enterprise Security

Following are the known issues for this version of Splunk Enterprise Security:


Date filed Issue number Description
2021-09-01 SOLNESS-28019 "src" or "dest" fields of Threat Activity events showing as "unknown" even though "threat_match_fields" is "src" or "dest"

Workaround:
# Navigate to the threat intelligence management page and click on the threat matching tab
  1. Click on, for example, "src" to edit that threat match configuration
  2. Scroll down on the modal and click the pencil for the first data model dataset
  3. Click on the "+ Add aggregate" and add "<datamodel>.src as src" to add the source field as an aggregate.
  4. Click Save.
  5. Repeat for other datasets as needed
  6. Repeat all steps for other threatmatch configurations as needed
2021-04-29 SOLNESS-26712 Incident review page loads slowly after an upgrade to Splunk Enterprise Security version 6.4 or higher.

Workaround:
Add a reasonable time period to the get_active_correlations macro. For example, earliest = -90d.
Otherwise, correlation searches that do not create a notable within that time frame cannot be selected as an option in the filters when the Incident Review page loads.
2021-03-03 SOLNESS-25956 Next Steps for adaptive response actions do not parse correctly in the Incident Review dashboard.

Workaround:
Enter each of the adaptive response actions on separate lines in the Next Steps field of the Correlation Search editor.


2021-01-04 SOLNESS-25051 Asset and Identity Framework: Unable to "delete" from assets / identites lookup tabs
2020-12-03 SOLNESS-24926 Threat Intelligence Framework: Setting SPLUNK_DB triggers this error: ValueError: Illegal escape from parent directory "/opt/splunk": /splunkdata/modinputs/threatlist

Workaround:
Contact support for single line update to threatlist.py
2020-12-01 SOLNESS-24869 Incident Review: Correlation search list limited to 100 results
2020-11-23 SOLNESS-24825 Risk Framework: risk_factors_rest_hander.update_datamodel assumes calculated_risk_score field
2020-11-20 SOLNESS-24809 Errors in Risk Analysis Dashboard after ES upgrade

Workaround:
Local overrides to the Risk datamodel occurring prior to 6.3.0 will be missing the calculated_risk_score field. It is recommended to remove the locally overridden Risk.json datamodel such that the shipped default can take over.
2019-03-15 SOLNESS-18377, SPL-167855 Workbench: custom visualizations don't work in workbench
