Earlier I ran into the missing Search Guard tab /w 6.5.4 - which was discussed here.
I dug around in Google Chrome, but I’m not a web dev type, so this is all a bit mysterious to me. I think I found the right place and I don’t see what Jochen suggested to look for:
The “systeminfo” JSON object is stored in the local storage of the browser and is fetched again when it is missing. So if this happens again the first thing you can check is the contents of the systeminfo in the local storage.
I restarted Kibana, then switched to a newly installed browser to log in, still no Search Guard tab. It’s not hurting operations, but I’m trying to teach some new people how to do these things, so kinda need to get it back.
