Ro - create dashboards

Hi… I currently have a group defined as such.

- name: ABR - Restricted
  type: allow
  kibana_access: ro
      name: "ldap1"
      groups: ["f_elasticsearch_abr_users"]
  kibana_hide_apps: ["readonlyrest_kbn", "timelion", "kibana:dev_tools", "kibana:management"]
  indices: [".kibana", "welcome*", "abr*"]
  verbosity: info

The users in this group should be able to create dashboards. Do they need rw access or is there another way around it ?

Hi @Kerwood,

The RO/RW in kibana_access refers to the ability or not to change anything in Kibana. Such user will not be able to delete, create, update any indices anyway.

For a better understanding about the kibana_access rule, please see this documentation paragraph.

Ok thanks… The group got rw :+1:
