Role Permissions

InNetWitness, user can access each module, dashlet, and view is restricted based on the assigned permissions. You can locate these role permissions in the Add or Edit Roles dialogs accessible from the netwitness_adminicon_25x22.png (Admin) > Security > Roles tab.

In the Add or Edit Role dialogs, the tabs in the Permission section represent different areas of NetWitness and show the available permissions for those areas. For example, the Administration tab shows the permissions available in the Admin view.

Note: There is no Configure tab in the Add/Edit Role dialogs that corresponds to the Configure view. To assign permissions in the Configure view, assign permissions to the views contained within the Configure view: Live Content (Live), Incident Rules (Incidents), Respond Notifications (Incidents, Respond-server, Integration server), ESA Rules (Alerting), Subscriptions (Live), and Custom Feeds (Live).

Note: To the left of the Administration tab is a tab marked with an asterisk (*). This tab indicates access to management of backend services only.

The tables that follow show the default permissions assigned to each NetWitness user role:

  • Administrators
  • Respond Administrators (RAs)

  • Reporting Engine Content Administrators (RE CAs)
  • Data Privacy Officers (DPOs)
  • SOC Managers (SOC Mgrs)
  • Operators
  • Malware Analysts (MAs)
  • Analysts
  • UEBA Analysts

Since the Administrators role has all of the permissions by default, it is not included in the tables.

Service Permissions Format for New Services

The service permissions for some new NetWitness services contain three parts in the following format:

<service name>.<resource>.<action>

For example, for the investigate-server.metrics.read permission:

  • service name = investigate-server
  • resource = metrics
  • action = read

Users assigned this permission can read any metrics that the investigate-server service exposes.

Admin-server

The following table describes the permissions in the Admin-server tab.

Permission Description
admin-server.configuration.manage Permission to modify all service configuration parameters
admin-server.health.read Permission to view any health notifications that the service exposes
admin-server.logs.manage Permission to change log-related configuration
admin-server.metrics.read Permission to view any metrics that the service exposes
