Kibana Spaces: Only show certain Indices

Hi everyone,

Does anyone know if it is possible to only show certain indices for a particular kibana space?

Currently I have multiple spaces and data is able to be seen from different spaces.


You can control which roles have access to each space. To get started, navigate to the Management > Roles screen.

Access to spaces is governed by a concept called “Minimum Privilege”. There are three options for the minimum privilege:

Minimum Privilege Description
all Users will have read/write access to all spaces in Kibana. Additionally, they will be able to create, edit, and delete any space in Kibana. This extends to spaces that are created in the future.
read Users will have read-only access to all spaces in Kibana. This extends to spaces that are created in the future.
none Users cannot access any space in Kibana.

here are examples of how to set it :


Hi Rashmi, is it possible to make a certain ES index accessible to a certain group of users? or spaces?

With role-based access control (RBAC), you can provide users access to data, tools, and Kibana spaces. Here is a tutorial which walks you through a scenario -

this explains, roles, minimum privileges, users, space etc.

Hope it helps

Hi Rashmi,

Thank you so much, this is the ideal solution. Just implemented it.
