Access issues in shield



Hi all,

I was trying to set up access to elastic search. In my scenario, i need to set up discover and kibana dashboards read-only option to a role. From the documentation, i understood kibana_user will be the right option. However, when I assign that to a person they cannot discover the logs in kibana but a super user can view it. Can somebody help me in solving this issue?

Note: Tried kibana_system and kibana_user both didnt allow to use discover option or view dashboards while dashboard_only option and super user works well

Thanks in advance,

You've missed step 5 of this doc:

The kibana_user role grants access to Kibana, but does not give access to the Elasticsearch data, you still need to create specific roles that give access to your log indices.


Resolved :wink: Thanks
