Setting privilegesedit

Access for all spaces in Kibana is governed by a concept called "minimum privilege." There are three options for minimum privilege:

all

Users have read/write access to all spaces in Kibana. Additionally, users can create, edit, and delete individual spaces. This extends to spaces that users create in the future.

read

Users have read-only access to all spaces in Kibana. This extends to spaces that users create in the future.

none

Users do not have the all-spaces access. You must set access on individual spaces.

Once you set the minimum privilege for all spaces, you can then add read and write access to individual spaces.

Examplesedit

To provide

Do this

Full access to all spaces

Set the minimum privilege to all. This grants full access to all spaces. In this case, you can’t customize access to specific spaces.

Read-only access to all spaces, with full access to specific spaces

Set the minimum privilege to read, then grant the all privilege to individual spaces as needed. You can’t revoke access to an individual space.

Read-only access to a specific space

Set the minimum privilege to none to prevent all-space access, then set the read privilege for an individual space, as shown below.
