Set access controls for workload managment

To view, create, and use workload pools and workload rules, a user's role must have the appropriate capabilities.

The following capabilities are enabled for role_admin by default:

Capability Permissions granted to role
list_workload_pools List and view workload pools.
list_workload_rules List and view workload rules.
edit_workload_pools Create and edit workload pools.
edit_workload_rules Create and edit workload rules.
select_workload_pools Assign scheduled and ad hoc searches to a workload pool.

The admin role can add the above capabilities to other roles to grant the specified permissions. For example, to allow a power user to assign search jobs to a workload pool, the admin can add the select_workload_pools capability to the power user role.

To add a capability to a role in Splunk Web, see Add and edit roles with Splunk Web.

To add a capability to a role in authorize.conf, see Add and edit roles with authorize.conf.
