Kibana users typically need to view dashboards and visualizations that contain Filebeat data. These users might also need to create and edit dashboards and visualizations. If you’re using Beats central management, some of these users might need to create and manage configurations.
To grant users the required privileges:
Create a reader role, called something like
filebeat_reader, that has the following privilege:
Type Privilege Purpose
Read data indexed by Filebeat
Allon Dashboards, Visualize, and Discover
Allow the user to view, edit, and create dashboards, as well as browse data.
Allon Kibana Logs
Allow the use of Kibana Logs
Assign the reader role, along with the following built-in roles, to users who need to read Filebeat data:
Allow users to monitor the health of Filebeat itself. Only assign this role to users who manage Filebeat.
Create and manage configurations in Beats central management. Only assign this role to users who need to use Beats central management. +
