Permissions to view knowledge objects but restrict search

Hi all,

Using Splunk enterprise 6.4.2, is it possible to allow users to view a dashboard that runs some savedsearches and also loads results from a savedsearch, but also restrict them from being able to run/write their own search queries.

If it is possible, what capabilities allow for this.

Thanks

I would suggesting hiding the search view, instead of removing search capability.
Go to Settings>User interface>Views.

Here, "search" is a view and you can change the permissions of this view and remove access to certain roles.

This way, the searches on dashboards and reports continue to run for the users belonging to these roles, but they wouldn't be able to access the search page to run ad hoc searches.

Search capability is required for running dashboard searches and saved searches, so users will need search capability, allowing them to run adhoc searches.

@somesoni2, thanks, would it be possible to hide the search view from specific users then?
