Adding chromeNavControls to default apps in Kibana


I was wondering if there is a way to add custom navigation controls (like a logout button for a custom authentification) in the default Kibana apps (e.g. home, discover, dashboard, visualize etc.).

It is possible to do it in a custom kibana plugin using chome.navControls (link to docs) using CoreStart objects, but I was wondering if this could be added in those other apps.

Hi @Neeecu,

By added do you mean as a feature request for all? Or just specifically for yourself and your use case?

In addition to the plugin option you could also change in the Kibana code itself, but that would be challenging as you would need to maintain the change between versions as you upgrade. So I think the plugin approach is probably the easiest one.

Hope that helps!
