Security

Is there some permission I can assign to users to allow them to upload images without asking an admin/power user?

  • When you upload an image, it is stored in the KV store. Because of this, only Enterprise admins, Cloud sc_admins, and power users can upload or delete images. If you don't have the correct role assigned to upload images, you can ask someone with the correct role to add it for you

@dinesh_bendigo I haven't tested this, but I don't think this will work. The collection you mention isn't exported to the system, but instead is app only (splunk-dashboard-studio).  Because of this it's not clear to me how allowing the user role read permissions to the splunk-dashboard-images will allow them to upload images on dashboards in other apps that aren't splunk-dashboard-studio.

@merrelr You can make that object visible in all apps by exporting it to system

Currently on version 9.0.2 and having the same issue.

I did some testing with a new user and role and this is what I found.

The only capability that will grant this access is the admin_all_objects which we can all agree isn't for regular users. 

Since we don't use the built in power role I did some testing with it and removed all it's inheritance and capabilities then set my new testing role to inherit it. For some reason that worked. So it's just checking if the user has the power role not actually anything within it.

So the ability to upload images currently requires one of the following:

  • admin_all_objects capability 
  • power role (with or without user role or capabilities)

Following as I have the same question and actually my power users can't upload images either even though documentation says they can.
