Limited Splunk Access to Only One Dashboard

Hey Splunkers!

Is it possible to give a Splunk user access to ONLY one dashboard in Splunk and nothing else, i.e., no searching, no reports, access to nothing but only that one dashboard?  If so, what's the best method to deploy access like this?  Any suggestions are greatly welcomed.

Hey @itsmevic,

I suggest you to create a role for this specific user and creating an app to place this dashboard. I don't think Splunk supports denying access to apps just using roles, so I guess you will also have to remove permissions from this new created role on every app you have deployed in your instance.

You can make some modifications to your dashboard to hide some of Splunk menu bars, such as adding "hideEdit" and "hideSplunkBar" to your form XML:

<form hideChrome="false" hideAppBar="false" hideEdit="true" hideSplunkBar="true">

Also, for preventing user to go outside the app using the "open search" option, you can add this to your panel options:

<option name="link.openSearch.visible">false</option>
<option name="link.openPivot.visible">false</option>

 I think this would be a good start for segregating access only to one dashboard.
