Problem Advanced configuration for Dashboard Only mode

Hi, i have two index in elastic cloud

Added the new role for a custom dashboard

Created and configured roled with index "chiporro"

Created user and assigned role

When I log in to user test1, I can't see the dashboards (they exist with that index) and I can't do anything.

I need your help, I would appreciate it


If you look at the definition for kibana_dashboard_only_role you'll see that it has specific access:

GET /_xpack/security/role/kibana_dashboard_only_user
  "kibana_dashboard_only_user" : {
    "cluster" : [ ],
    "indices" : [
        "names" : [
        "privileges" : [
    "run_as" : [ ],
    "metadata" : {
      "_reserved" : true
    "transient_metadata" : {
      "enabled" : true

Your test_dashboard_only_user needs to grant that same access to .kibana

Hi, apparently I have the same accesses in the role test_dashboard_only_user

is rare :sweat:
