One of our users has mistakenly been granted a higher level of access than is appropriate. I have reset the user’s role within Grafana, which solves the problem in the long term, but in the short term they still have a preexisting open browser session with the privilege of the wrong role.
What can I do to force the role change to take effect? I don’t want to ask the user to sign-out of their browser session and back in because there is no positive feedback for me that the necessary action has been taken.
Is there a way I can terminate the user’s session within Grafana?
If not then I had some ideas about how I could force it, but I wanted to know which would be effective rather than resorting to trial and error:
- Delete their account - I tried this on a test account and it crashed the test account’s browser session, so not viable.
- Restart the Grafana service - ineffective
- Reboot the Grafana server - haven’t tried this and not sure if this would make a difference
- Reboot the user’s PC - drastic but would probably work?
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
