2020-02-20 SOLNESS-21817, SOLNESS-21910 When you add more than 30 statuses in Notable Status Configuration and then try to change earlier ones, you get an error message "Notable status of label <number> does not exist."

Manually clean up reviewstatuses.conf to reduce number of statuses down to 30 or less:
2020-02-13 SOLNESS-21783 Incident Review does not load when read permissions on pertinent lookups are limited to select roles
2020-01-30 SOLNESS-21581 Entity merge not parsing MV fields in KV Store sources
2020-01-24 SOLNESS-21476 Notable Event Framework: Invalid severity values afflict urgency calculation
2020-01-16 SOLNESS-21220, SOLNESS-21618 Identity Management: Preview search request issued via query string (issue for IE)
2019-12-13 SOLNESS-21001 Identity Management: Inferred/Implicit "identity" key values can cause unintended identity record merges

In ES 6.0 we merge Asset and Identity records which have overlapping secondary keys ("asset" and "identity" fields respectively). When this is combined with inferred/implicit key values based on email, email_short and/or convention based mapping, it's possible that unintended records are merged.

If you are *not* interested in the inferred/implicit identity values (i.e. email, email_short), simply disable on an input-by-input basis by using the "Asset and Identity Management" UI to uncheck or remove conventions as needed for each input.
If you are interested in the inferred/implicit identity values, consider relocating items which overlap into their own identity_manager input such that conventions can be disabled just for this specific input.

2019-12-10 SOLNESS-20951, SOLNESS-20994 Postinstall fails when upgrading due to error enabling modular inputs

The enablement of modular inputs during post-install can lead to failures if the role performing the install is missing capabilities.

Verify the role being used to install (i.e. role_admin) inherits the additional roles shipped by ES (ess_admin, ess_analyst, ess_user) and re-run setup.

2018-10-03 SOLNESS-16682, SPL-170703 Internal Error: Missing a search command before *
