Configure your own user on the Splunk instance to see how user and role management work.
- [Josh] Before we do too much with Splunk,…let's take a minute to set up an actual user…so that you don't have to keep using the admin account.…From the home page, go to settings…and then under users and authentication,…click access controls.…Here you can see it says users and we wanna click add new.…I'll just put my name and I'll pick a very secure password.…Down here under roles, I wanna give myself the admin role,…so I'll just click on admin.…
I'm also gonna uncheck require password at first login…just so I don't have to deal with that.…I'll click save.…You can see I've created my new user.…Let's go back to access controls…and this time click on roles.…Splunk uses role based access control which splits up…the access into a number of what it calls capabilities…and then these can be assigned to specific roles.…You see here that the admin role has 63 capabilities,…but the regular user role doesn't have nearly as many.…
If we click on view capabilities, you can see it has…a lot of different permissions of what it's able to do.…
