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.
