How to create Enterprise Security custom roles and have Notables dashboard different for each roles?

Super Champion

anyone created "custom" roles in Enterprise Security and re-used the notables dashboard (security events) ?
We have multiple teams to cater for security, and was thinking of sending specific alerts to Security group based on their roles

The only requirement is
- ONE user should not be able to view the alerts of other user
- But OK, if they want to search index and see it. So we don't need index level restrictions, but ONLY view/dashboard/notable level segregation

I am not sure whether you can achieve this using custom ES role or not but here is the blog post https://www.splunk.com/blog/2017/03/20/assigning-role-based.html to create custom role in ES

yes, you could create roles, but not as easy as normal splunk. You need to pickup the capabilities you need and create the roles - the above article is a good starting point.
