The level of access assigned to a role that specifies how a user with that role can interact with knowledge objects in Splunk software.
Splunk software has two types of permissions: read and write. If a role grants a user write permissions for a knowledge object, the user can view it and update its properties. If a role grants a user only read permissions, the user can only view the object. If a role grants a user neither type of permission for a knowledge object, the user cannot access it.
