Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: A user's role was not using the correct mechanism for evaluating what projects they could see Consequence: User's in a group were improperly being denied viewing logs for admin projects. Fix: Use SubjectAccessReview to evaluate project visibility Result: User's of a group that can see a project are able to see project logs without given explicit access to the project.

It's fixed, verified with users belongs to a group with cluster-admin role, she's now able to see log entries inside index ".operations*" after logged in to kibana:

Test env:
# openshift version
openshift v3.4.1.32
kubernetes v1.4.0+776c994
etcd 3.1.0-rc.0

Image tested with:
openshift3/logging-elasticsearch      3.4.1               0b64a8a567d5

Test steps:
# oadm groups new testing
# oadm groups add-users testing xiazhao
# oadm policy add-role-to-group cluster-admin testing

Then logged in to kibana UI with user xiazhao, she's able to see log entries inside index ".operations*"
