@arikfr can I limit a group to a board and not a data source ?

@adjunct no. you can achieve this with data sources. what is the use case you're trying to solve?

@arikfr I
I'm trying to limit a group of users to only to one specific board (view)

What you can do is:

  1. Create new group with view only permissions on a new data source (that can be the same underlying database)
  2. Create the dashboard you want with queries from this data source
  3. Done*

*almost done, because in current implementation all the users can see the full list of dashboards, but they might not see the data in them if they don't have access. It will be fixed once #957 is merged.

Does this make sense?

@adjunct I just realized: v0.10 (currently in development) has support for generating a secret link to access dashboards.
it has some limitations, but might work for you. I will send an example in a moment

We'r currently running locally - √
0.9.1+b1377
one sec
something isn't right (it requires login)
ok, it's working
@adjunct you can upgrade to 0.10 (note that you need to pass the flag stable=false to the fabric script)
