This topic introduces the features of the Administration Security view > External Group Mapping tab > Add Role Mapping dialog.

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.
  2. Click the External Group Mapping tab.
  3. In the toolbar, click .
    The Add Role Mapping dialog for the external authentication method you set up is displayed.
