Configure Splunk Cloud Gateway and dashboard permissions

Admins must configure the appropriate permissions in Splunk Web to enable users to use Splunk Cloud Gateway and view dashboards on their mobile devices.

By default, admins have the cloudgateway_read and cloudgateway_write capabilities, and therefore have full access to the Splunk Cloud Gateway app.

The Connected Experiences apps provide role-based access control. You can edit roles and capabilities to manage who can see what data. See About configuring role-based user access in the Splunk Enterprise Securing Splunk Enterprise manual to learn more about role-based access control.


Configure Splunk Cloud Gateway permissions

Admins must grant users the cloudgateway role so that they can use Splunk Cloud Gateway.

Only admins can configure apps, edit roles, and select apps to show dashboards in the Connected Experiences apps.

To add a user from the cloudgateway role, do the following:

  1. Log in as a user with the Splunk admin role.
  2. In Splunk Web, click Settings > Access Controls.
  3. Click Users.
  4. Click Edit next to the user you want to update.
  5. In the Assign to roles section, click cloudgateway to add it.
  6. Click Save.

See Add and edit users in the Splunk Enterprise Securing Splunk Enterprise manual for more information about roles.
