Splunk Search

How to disable search in a specified index for certain groups of users?

Fleshwriter
Explorer

Hello.

I have a simple question:

I would like to have a specified index with sensitive data in it, however, I don't want every user to have access to it - only a few. How can I do it?

Do I create a custom users group?

Bests,
- F.

You control access to indexes based upon roles.

So you create a new role group, and add the access to the index to the role group. Then you add the users to the role group.
