Read Only Kibana Dashboard

Hello Everyone,
I have created a Dashboard in Kibana 5 and now i want to share with users such that they can only view the Dashboard and not make any changes to it.
How can i achieve that?
Which privileges should be assigned ?

hi @tausif786,

I guess you are using the Security plugin from X-Pack? You can assign the visitor-user read-only priviliges on the .kibana index. That way, they cannot modify any of the dashboards and visualizations.

You might also be interested in Starting from 5.4, when sharing Dashboards, they will be shared in "view-only" mode, so visitors to shared dashboard will not see the editing-links. That will work without the Security-plugin too. 5.4 is the next upcoming minor release, which is coming soon.
