This topic describes how you can set up access and permissions to manage the Warehouse Analytics job. The access control for the Warehouse Analytics module is provided at the job level. Only a user who has the right set of permissions can perform the tasks in the Warehouse Analytics module. The access control is managed by the administrator from the Administration > Security > Roles tab.

As an administrator you must ensure that the roles created for specific tasks have access to all the permissions higher in the hierarchy of roles. 

Jobs are tied to a specific set of user roles so when a user logs into Security Analytics, the only jobs the user can access are that to which the user belongs. Users that belong to a user role with the ‘Read & Write’ access permission have full access rights on the job. Further, the access can be strengthened so that jobs are accessed only by those who have the ‘Read Only’ access.

At the job level, you can set the following access permissions for the user roles in Security Analytics:

  • Read & Write
  • Read Only
  • No Access

Access Control for a Warehouse Analytics Module

When you want to change the job permissions, you must select a job and set their access permissions using the Jobs Permission panel.

Except for Administrators, the default permission set for all the other user roles is 'No Access' before applying job permissions. 

If you want to change the access permission for a specific user role, you must set these at the job level.

Access Control for a Job When Multiple Jobs are Selected

When you want to change permissions of multiple jobs, you can select multiple jobs at a time and set their access permissions on the Jobs Permission panel. The access permission that you select is applied to all the selected jobs.
