Multiple Kibana instances per cluster


(Jin) #1

Looks like Kibana does not have a feature to apply role based access control on visualization or dashboard items within one instance. Can ECE configure multiple Kibana instances for a given cluster?

I understand that permission is applied on index but this special use case wants to have minimal information leakage between users.

Thanks.

Jin.

Hi Jin,
unfortunately ECE does not support multiple Kibana deployments that point to one Elasticsearch cluster.

@Yuri, thank you. Jin.

@Yuri,

If I have additional kibana instances connecting to the same elastic cluster, will there any conflict or potential race condition between the ECE kibana and additional kibana instances?

Thank you.

Jin.

@jmtrc, I am not expert in Kibana, but I do think that some kind of race conditions is possible if Kibana instances are configured to point to the same index for storing metadata.
