In the Lists Permissions dialog, you can manage access permissions for a user role at the list or list group level. Only a user with Read and Write permission can configure the list in the Reporting Module.


This workflow shows the procedure to manage lists or list groups. You can set access control at the list or list group level so that only users with specific roles can access the lists. You can use lists to define rules for generating reports, charts and alerts.

You must ensure that Reporting Engine is configured on NetWitness Platform.
