My goal is to allow the creation of a dashboard, which can be embedded on to my users account, so that they can view only their data.
What I was thinking was:
- Create a user which has access to a specific global* index pattern
- All indices then become accessible via visualizations I can create
- Create a proxy which adds the Authorization Basic base64 to load the
/app/kibana#embed for the dashboard.
So far, the above all works. I've successfully created dashboards and can share them via the proxy.
The problem is that I don't know how I can filter by specific user. If each document has:
user: 3 etc...
How can I have a dashboard which has visualizations, such that when I try and embed the dashboard, ONLY the data which matches a specific
user === 1 will be returned, if I'm loading for user 1.
I can obviously create a filter, but then anyone can just select another user and load their data too. (It's not actually super sensitive data, so we have no problems in there "technically" being a risk of exposing other user data. Everything is published on a website anyway, so there is no expectancy of private data.
So, is this possible?
Have a dashboard, whcih can be shared by all users, and then from my own personal SaaS app, when it's embedded, I pass some custom prop to force a search on only particular field values?
