This topic describes how to add a role and assign permissions to the role.

Pre-configured Roles

Although Security Analytics has five pre-configured roles, you can add custom roles. For example, in addition to the pre-configured Analysts role you can add custom roles for AnalystsEurope and AnalystsAsia.

AdministratorsFull system access
OperatorsAccess to configurations but not to data
AnalystsAccess to data but not to configurations
SOC_ManagersSame access as Analysts plus additional permission to handle incidents
Malware_AnalystsAccess to malware events only

Depending on the user role, you can set the following access permissions to access the Warehouse Analytics module:

  • Define Jobs
  • Delete Jobs
  • Manage Jobs
  • View Jobs

Note: You must enable all of these permissions for a user role to be able to define, delete, manage, and view jobs.

For more information on the list of permissions, see  Role Permissions topic in the System Security and User Management Guide.
