In addition to the five pre-configured Analysts roles you can add custom roles and assign permissions to the roles in the Roles tab. 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 ADMIN > 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.
Although NetWitness Suite 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.
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
For more information on the list of permissions, see "Role Permissions" topic in the System Security and User Management Guide.

Go to ADMIN > Security.
The Administration Security view is displayed.
Click the Roles tab.
