Customize Episode Review in ITSI

As a Splunk ITSI administrator, you can customize the way that analysts view and interact with events and episodes in Episode Review.

Modify which events analysts can see

By default, ITSI service-level permissions apply to episodes in Episode Review. This means that analysts viewing Episode Review can only see events from services for which they have read permission. If an event is not associated with a particular service (none of the fields in the event contains service information) then all users can view the event.

The ITSI administrator can choose to disable service-level permissions for Episode Review using the itsi_team.conf file. To disable service-level permissions for Episode Review, create a new itsi_team.conf file in the SA-ITOA/local directory and set disabled = 1 under the [notable_event_review_security_group] stanza.

If service-level permissions are disabled for Episode Review, all ITSI users can see all notable events, regardless of which service they are associated with. However, service information for services that a user does not have read access to will not be displayed for notable events.

For information about service-level permissions, see ITSI Service-level permissions in the Installation and Configuration Manual.

Modify analyst permissions

Configure read/write permissions on a saved view of Episode Review to restrict permissions for certain roles. By default, read and write permissions are granted to "Everyone" (all roles) for a newly created Episode Review.

Prerequisites

  • You must have the itoa_admin or itoa_team_admin role, or be assigned the configure_perms capability, to set permissions on a saved Episode Review. For more information, see Configure users and roles in ITSI.
