Key Features (PRO)

A real login screen

More secure, without ugly prompts

Login through a customisable full-screen login form.

Way more secure because credentials are passed only once and traded for an encrypted cookie that will eventually expire.

ReadonlyREST Login screen

A well integrated logout button

Shows the currently logged in user name

Reliably log out by pressing a beautiful pink button that shows your name.

Say goodbye to archaic workarounds: logging out from a HTTP Basic Auth session is tricky, and doesn’t work in all browsers.


Clusterwide settings

Tweak your security settings, no cluster reboot needed.

Just hit the “Save” button and changes take effect instantly in all the nodes.

No more keeping in sync all nodes’ settings files at all times.

No more restarting all nodes one by one.

Security Settings Kibana ReadonlyREST

Full control over Kibana Apps

Hide Kibana Apps from certain users or groups

Should a product manager be able to access the “Dev Tools” app?
Does your sales team care about “Timelion”?

Why even show these icons?

ReadonlyREST PRO you can hide and prevent access to Kibana apps on a user or group basis.

ReadonlyREST PRO is a commercially licensed Kibana plugin which cannot function without ReadonlyREST Elasticsearch plugin.

The latter is freely available under the terms of the GNU GPLv3 license. This license guarantees that the code stays free and any commercial modification is contributed back.

If this license feels too restrictive for your use case, just buy ReadonlyREST Enterprise: it will grant your organization a ReadonlyREST commercial license instead of the GPLv3, avoiding any legal issues your lawyers might raise.

Please see the License FAQ for further detail on licensing including options for distributing ReadonlyREST Enterprise with your own products.
