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.
This workflow shows the procedure to manage rule or rule groups.

This figure shows the Rules Permissions dialog for a single rule.
The dialog has a different appearance for rule groups versus rules. To access the dialog:

The Manage tab is displayed.
- In the Rules panel, select one or more rules or a rule group.
The Rules Permissions dialog is displayed.
|Roles column|| |
Lists the NetWitness Platform user roles, both built-in and custom roles. Each user who is logged in to NetWitness Platform has user roles assigned.
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 column||When 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 column||When the checkbox in this column is selected, the corresponding user role has permission to view the rules in the rule group.|
|No Access column||When 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 Platform applies permissions to sub-groups and rules in the group.
|Cancel option||Clicking Cancel closes the dialog without saving any changes made.|
|Save option||Clicking Save closes the dialog and updates the rule group permissions for user roles. |
If specified, the access permissions are applied to subgroups and child objects of this group.
When multiple rules are selected, the access permission is applied to all the selected rules.
