This topic describes the method for mapping NetWitness Suite user roles to external groups.

In NetWitness Suite, external groups derive permissions for various modules and views from NetWitness Suite user roles, which have permissions assigned to them. To provide access to an external group, map user roles to it. To modify an external group's access, edit the roles mapped to it. Add and delete roles until the external group has the necessary access. Changes take effect immediately.

Prerequisites

In the Settings tab, you must set up a method for external user authentication to make external groups visible to NetWitness Suite.

  1. In NetWitness Suite, go to ADMIN > Security.
    The Security view is displayed with the Users tab open.
  2. Click the External Group Mapping tab.
  3. In the toolbar, click Image of the Add icon.
    The Add Role Mapping dialog for the external authentication method you selected is displayed.
