How to configure _masked_fields_ from Kibana Configuration GUI

Hi,

I am looking into Search Guard to secure our Elasticsearch cluster.

I’ve read about field anonymization in Search Guard (https://docs.search-guard.com/latest/field-anonymization), but I cannot find this option when configuring permissions form the Kibana Configuration GUI.

Can someone tell me how to achieve this?

Thanks!

  • Search Guard version: 6.3.0-22.3

  • Elasticsearch version: 6.3.0

  • Using trial version

  • JVM version: 1.8.0_102

  • Operating system version: CentOS 7

  • Search Guard configuration files: demo configuration

This has not been added to the Kibana Config GUI unfortunately. We have it on the roadmap, and it should come soon. At the moment you need to add the masked fields to the sg_roles.yml file as explained in the docs:

Also, please make sure you have the compliance edition installed:

We will merge the compliance features in the regular Search Guard code base very soon so there is only one download. In the course of this, we will also add the missing compliance settings to the config GUI.
