Services Security View - Settings Tab

In the Services Security view Settings tab, Administrators can enable and configure system roles that define permissions on a per meta key basis for individual Brokers, Concentrators, Network Decoders, and Log Decoders. Configuring this feature adds configurable meta keys to the Services Security view > Roles tab so that individual meta keys can be applied to specific roles on a specific service. The following figure illustrates this.

This is an example of the Roles tab.

This configuration is generally part of a data privacy plan implemented to ensure that specific types of content consumed or aggregated by a service are kept secure by limiting visibility of the metadata and content to privileged users. See the Data Privacy Management Guide for more information.
