This topic describes the features of the Services Security view > Settings tab.

In the Services Security view Settings tab, Administrators can enable and configure system roles that define permissions on a per meta key basis for individual Brokers, Concentrators, Decoders, and Log Decoders. Configuring this feature adds configurable meta keys to the Services Security view > Roles tab so that individual meta keys can be applied to specific roles on a specific service. The following figure illustrates the result of SDK meta key roles being enabled for a Decoder.

This configuration is generally part of a data privacy plan implemented to ensure that specific types of content consumed or aggregated by a service are kept secure by limiting visibility of the meta data and content to privileged users (see Data Privacy Management).

To display the tab:

  1. In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > Services.
  2. In the Services grid, select a Decoder or Log Decoder service and 104NavSettingsIcon.png > View > Security and click the Settings tab.
