Kibana users typically need to view dashboards and visualizations that contain Metricbeat 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
metricbeat_reader, that has the following privilege:
Type Privilege Purpose
Read data indexed by Metricbeat
Allon Dashboards, Visualize, and Discover
Allow the user to view, edit, and create dashboards, as well as browse data.
Allon Kibana Metrics
Allow the use of Kibana Metrics
Assign the reader role, along with the following built-in roles, to users who need to read Metricbeat data:
Allow users to monitor the health of Metricbeat itself. Only assign this role to users who manage Metricbeat.
Create and manage configurations in Beats central management. Only assign this role to users who need to use Beats central management. +
