I have created an app that contains some simple XML dashboards.
I am trying to achieve the following.
User logs onto Splunk and lands on the Launcher Homepage
I have created a new role for the dashboard user, for dashboards to work the search app is required.
I have looked at various forum posts but cannot seem to remove all access to the Search & Reporting functionality. I have tried editing the views/permissions/nav but I think I am missing something.
I have tried removing the views "Flashtimeline" and "Dashboard_live" but then the user gets an 404 error when logging into Splunk.
I would also like to remove the "settings" drop down for these users, but I'll take getting the above to work first.
Is the above possible?
I am on 6.1.4
I'm a fool!
First time doing this, so app context was a new thing to me.
Recreated all the searches and dashboards from within the app and now everything works as it should. I can remove access to the search app and the Dashboard app will still work!
The user still gets the "manage app" button on the launcher homepage which leads to a 404 but everything else looks good.
