Configure roles and manage access to Splunk Business Flow

To manage role-based access in Splunk Business Flow (SBF), use the access control system built into the Splunk platform for authentication and authorization. Splunk platform administrators use this access control system to add users, assign users to roles, and assign those roles custom capabilities to provide limited, role-based access control for your organization.

Splunk Business Flow adds one role to the default roles provided by the Splunk platform. This role is unique to SBF and does not apply to Splunk Enterprise or other Splunk apps.

Assign this role to SBF users with strong domain expertise who are business process experts. This role inherits all the capabilities of the power role and also provides the sbf_set_visibility_flow_model and sbf_edit_flow_model capabilities. Private Flow Models may only be used by the administrative Splunk Business Flow Modeler role for testing, configuration and preview of Flow Models.

As a Splunk platform administrator, you can assign users to this role. For more about assigning roles, see Add and edit roles in Splunk Web in Securing Splunk Enterprise.

Capabilities inherited from Splunk platform roles

The sbf_modeler role inherits capabilities from the Splunk platform power role.
