Access Control

(Middleware team team) #1

Is it possible to give user based access control to KIBANA dashboard? Like some user is having access to view specific content only and ADMIN is having visibility to all data?

Also is is possible to integrate the users with AD or any other such mechanism?

You can achieve something like it with dashboard_only_user, but I recommend waiting for Kibana Spaces, which is due to come out in 6.5 which will provide granular access to data.
And yes, you can use Active Directory to map users in Kibana and Elasticsearch:

I will try the AD integration and access control mechanism as well till the 6.5 comes in.

Below link suggests that dashboard only is possible in 6.0 onward but I am not getting any of the option at mentioned path.

Can someone please help with this?

What are you missing, the kibana_dashboard_user_only role?

I am getting dashboard only mode but unable to add user for it.
