In Security Analytics each user role has its own set of permissions. You can map one or more Security Analytics roles to an external group, which grants the group the same set of permissions that each role has.

  1. In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > Security.
    The Security view is displayed with the Users tab open.
  2. Click the External Group Mapping tab.
  3. In the toolbar, click Icon-Add.png.
  4. The Add Role Mapping dialog for the external authentication method you set up is displayed.
