How to restrict user to access only Kibana dashboard

(Sudharshan Katha) #1

Created a user with "kibana_dashboard_only_user" role even though the user has admin level access and used x-path basic license.

What is your question?

If you want to restrict a user, I wouldn't give them admin level access. You should be able to edit that user and only apply the proper roles to that user, and remove admin access.

Also note that security is not part of xpack basic.

Thanks for the reply

I have created a user and that user should access only dashboards. For this, added 'kibana_dashboard_only_user' role. When logged into Kibana with the created user, I could see that user able to see all tabs like Discovery, visualization, management etc.

Thanks David. Do we have any limitations with basic xpack?

See the full list.

The default distribution of Elasticsearch includes all of X-Pack, but the default license is "basic" which does not include security.

You can activate a free trial of the commercial features via Kibana (Management -> License) or via the API.
