To grant Index Level access for users of your Stack you first need to create a team and configure the required Kibana Custom Role. This is a special role that gives you the flexibility to manage the users within this team by choosing from any available Kibana Security Roles for your Stack.

Based on your permissions you can view your teams via Account Settings > Teams. From here you can view existing and add new teams for your account.

Adding a Kibana Custom Role Team

All Logit accounts have a number of predefined teams that you can use to manage common scenarios, in this case, we want to add a new team, so choose ‘Create a new team’. Give the team a suitable name e.g. My Custom Index Only Team

Under Stack Only Permission Roles choose Manage Roles for the required Stack.

Select the Kibana Custom Role checkbox and choose the Roles that you want this Custom Role to have.

Tip: If you have added Roles in Kibana Security but don't see them listed here, choose Re-Sync Roles. Alternatively, if you need to add a new role then choose Create Role In Kibana to open up Kibana Security.

Under Team Members and Access Permissions, you can choose which team members belong to this team.

Team members added to a Kibana Custom Role team here will automatically be added to the relevant role in Kibana Security as shown below.

In addition, if you would like to manage permissions for users directly in Kibana Security we also give you the flexibility to do this, see how to manage permissions directly using Kibana Security.
