The Reporting module provides access control at the rule level. Only a user who has the right set of permissions can perform tasks on the rule. When creating user roles, the administrator must ensure that the roles created for specific tasks have access to all the permissions higher in the hierarchy of roles.

When multiple rules are selected, the asterisk beside the role name, for example, Security*, indicates there are other permissions available on that user role. To change the other permissions, you must select the user role and change the access permission.

Read & Write columnWhen the checkbox in this column is selected, the corresponding user role has permission to view, edit, delete, import, and export rules in the Rules view. The user can also change the permission on the rule.
 
Read Only columnWhen the checkbox in this column is selected, the corresponding user role has permission to view the rules in the rule group.
No Access columnWhen the checkbox in this column is selected, the corresponding user role cannot view or edit the rules in the rule group.

Before applying rule permissions, this is the default permission set for all the user roles though the checkbox is unchecked.

Apply these permissions to sub-groups and Rules in this group checkbox

When checked, NetWitness Suite applies permissions to sub-groups and rules in the group.
