How do I create Non-Admin view license pools by index?

Contributor

Hello All,

What capabilities do I need to add to a non-admin role to have view into the LIcense Usage Report so that they can split the pool by index, etc...?

Currently they are inheriting user and then I added license_edit and license_tab and license_view_warnings is there anything else? We are running 7.1.2

thanks

@edwardrose,

If the users want only to the licensing tab , license_edit should be enough - just tested in 7.1.2. However, the information is picked up from _internal index and hence access to _internal index and also the capability dispatch_rest_to_indexers also might be needed since the searches use REST APIs.

On another note, if you do not want the users to access the license itself , you could copy the dashboard and create a separate one for the users. The searches are available in the panels.
