Kibana / Security (X-Pack) - permissions

I'm trying to follow Configuring Role-based Access Control | X-Pack for the Elastic Stack [5.6] | Elastic...

How can one specify a following permissions

  • specific _type
  • if certain field exists

Please advise.

You can create permissions for a role on documents that match a certain query, which is usually referred to as "Document Level Security" and requires at least a Platinum-level X-Pack license.


Permissions on a specific type would require a term query on the _type field [1], and permissions on if a field exists would use an exists query [2]
