Communicator

While this can get a complicated, we create two dashboards, one for each role level.
They can only see the dashboard assigned to their role, then you can set each drill down by each role/dashboard combination.
As long as you set that each role can only view their one dashboard, should all be fine.

Hi , Nawneel
I think you can do it like this(in splunk 6.2):
1- you create 2 new roles for users of each group with appropriate restriction.
2- when you edit the dashboard permission you will see the roles you created. Now for that dashboard, you can tick read or write.
doing so alls users to whom you have assigned the role will be affected by that.

Note: to create role in splunk web go to : setting -->Access control-->Role
to edit dashboard permission : setting-->User interface-->Views, localize your dashboard and edit permission
