Is it possible to sent the default permission for any dashboard create within a custom to app instead of private?

I have a custom app built for a team and I want them to be able to create dashboards that is shared by default with the app instead of private. Here is the role capability for the users, they were created to be very basic as majority of the users barely understand Splunk.

User capapbilities:

export_results_is_visible
get_metadata
get_typeahead
pattern_detect
rest_apps_view
rest_properties_get
rest_properties_set
search

Any suggestions or pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Everyone.

It is not possible. When a user creates a new dashboard by default its permissions set to Private. It's user job to configure permissions for the dashboard to share the dashboard in the current app context.

That is what i figured but it doesn't hurt to ask. Based on the capabilities I have given the user, they can't change the permission of the dashboard they create and you can view their dashboard if it is private with going into the users folder.

Any suggestions for what capabilities they need?

Thank you,

Derek

You need to give write permissions to the users role in app metadata. Create default.meta in yourapp/metadata/ and add below content.

[views]
access = read : [  ], write : [ admin, <role_name>]
