Hide App Dropdown list menu just for one user

Path Finder

Hi Splunkers!

I'm trying to hide the app dropdown list from a dashboard, but just for one single user. I want to achieve this without having to use a script, and right now I could by creating a .css file in appserver/static with this content:

.menu-apps {display: none !important;}

The problem? Of course, it hiddes the menu for all users (included Admin), and I just want to hide it from the user "user1".

Is there a way to achieve this without using a script? I was thinking in put that .css on $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/users/user1/myapp/appserver/static, but that approach doesn't work.

Any ideas? I'm using Splunk 6.6.3 btw

I would do the following:

  1. Create a new role.
  2. Add the user to the new role.
  3. Clone the original dashboard.
  4. Add custom css to the clone.
  5. Set permissions for the new dashboard.
  6. Revise permissions for the original dashboard.

I hope this helps!
