This topic introduces the features of the Admin > Security > External Group Mapping tab > Add Role Mapping dialog.

In NetWitness Platform each user role has its own set of permissions. You can map one or more NetWitness Platform roles to an external group, which grants the group the same set of permissions that each role has.
