How to provide single Kibana link to multiple clients

Hi Guys,

I was wondering of it's possible to provide single kibana link to multiple clients . What i am planning is to create multiple indexes and restrict client to their respective index. So that everyone can open same link but with restricted access . I hope this makes sense . I got to know that authentication can be handled with Shield plugin but what about single Kibana link thing.

Or if I create multiple dashboard in Kibana and I want to restrict clients to their respective dashboards only.Can I achieve this ?

Hello vikas_gopal,

yes you can do this. But you need to buy Shield so you can create some index aliases with filter´s. And than set the users to this index you want.

or you wait till kibana 4.2....:

Thank you Felix_Kutscher,
Wow!! I guess I get a start here and I guess I can use Shield for 30 days since it has 30 days trial right ? I have another question here , as you mentioned I can set the users to a certain index ,but can I integrate it with LDAP, because in production environment it would be hard to mention users manually .I hope it make sense .. :slight_smile:

I need another favor may I get some reference, doc or link to setup shield for Kibana also LDAP thing. Thank you again for your time and support Felix.
