we’re super happy to announce that we just released the first beta version of our brand new Kibana multitenancy module.
This module adds true multitenancy support to Kibana, which means that you can now enjoy separation of all saved objects like Dashboards, Visualizations and Saved Searches based on the user’s role(s).
For each Search Guard role, you can define an arbitrary number of so-called tenants. A tenant is a named container for saved objects, and users can have either read-write or read-only access to them. On Kibana side, you simply choose the tenant you want to work with from a list of accessible tenants, and Search Guard makes sure that all objects are placed in the correct tenant. We also introduced two default tenants, Global and Private, that each user has access to. The Global tenant is shared with everyone, while the Private tenant is shared with no one.
We’re looking for your help in testing this new module! We’ve released the first beta for ES 5.2.2 and Kibana 5.2.2, alongside with a beta version of Search Guard that supports the new module.
The module itself can be found here:
