Kibana multi tenancy


(Saket Kumar) #1

I have Kibana 4.1.1 installed. Created a Dashboard with 10 of visualizations.
How can I achieve multi tenancy in Kibana?
I have two users and want them to see their relevant data rather than entire.
How can I achieve this?

Kibana doesn't currently support multi-tenancy out of the box. There are a few workarounds you could consider, depending on what you want to achieve.

  1. If you're not worried about security and you just want separate users to see different data, you could create multiple dashboards with the same visualizations but with different searches/filters backing them.

  2. If you need a higher level of isolation and security, you could use Shield and set up multiple instances of Kibana - one per user/group - configured to point to different configuration indices (instead of the default .kibana).
