authorize.conf

The following are the spec and example files for authorize.conf.

authorize.conf.spec

#   Version 7.3.0
#
# This file contains possible attribute/value pairs for creating roles in
# authorize.conf.  You can configure roles and granular access controls by
# creating your own authorize.conf.

# There is an authorize.conf in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/default/. To set
# custom configurations, place an authorize.conf in
# $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/. For examples, see authorize.conf.example.
# You must restart Splunk to enable configurations.
#
# To learn more about configuration files (including precedence) please see
# the documentation located at
# http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Admin/Aboutconfigurationfiles

GLOBAL SETTINGS


# Use the [default] stanza to define any global settings.
#   * You can also define global settings outside of any stanza, at the top
#     of the file.
#   * Each .conf file should have at most one default stanza. If there are
#     multiple default stanzas, attributes are combined. In the case of
#     multiple definitions of the same attribute, the last definition in
#     the file wins.
#   * If an attribute is defined at both the global level and in a specific
#     stanza, the value in the specific stanza takes precedence.

[default]

srchFilterSelecting = <boolean>
* Determines whether a role's search filters are used for selecting or
  eliminating during role inheritance.
* If "true", the search filters are used for selecting. The filters are joined
  with an OR clause when combined.
* If "false", the search filters are used for eliminating. The filters are joined
  with an AND clause when combined.
* Example:
  * role1 srchFilter = sourcetype!=ex1 with selecting=true
  * role2 srchFilter = sourcetype=ex2 with selecting = false
  * role3 srchFilter = sourcetype!=ex3 AND index=main with selecting = true
  * role3 inherits from role2 and role 2 inherits from role1
  * Resulting srchFilter = ((sourcetype!=ex1) OR
    (sourcetype!=ex3 AND index=main)) AND ((sourcetype=ex2))
* Default: true

[capability::<capability>]

* DO NOT edit, remove, or add capability stanzas. The existing capabilities
  are the full set of Splunk system capabilities.
* Splunk software adds all of its capabilities this way.
* For the default list of capabilities and assignments, see authorize.conf
  under the 'default' directory.
* Only alphanumeric characters and "_" (underscore) are allowed in
  capability names.
  Examples:
  * edit_visualizations
  * view_license1
* Descriptions of specific capabilities are listed below.

[role_<roleName>]

<capability> = <enabled>
* A capability that is enabled for this role. You can list many capabilities
  for each role.
* NOTE: 'enabled' is the only accepted value here, as capabilities are
  disabled by default.
* Roles inherit all capabilities from imported roles, and you cannot disable
  inherited capabilities.
* Role names cannot have uppercase characters. Usernames, however, are
  case-insensitive.
* Role names cannot contain spaces, colons, semicolons, or forward slashes.

importRoles = <semicolon-separated list>
* A list of other roles and their associated capabilities that Splunk software
  should import.
* Importing other roles also imports the other aspects of that role, such as
  allowed indexes to search.
* By default a role imports no other roles.

grantableRoles = <semicolon-separated list>
* A list of roles that determines which users, roles, and capabilities 
  that a user with a specific set of permissions can manage.
* This setting lets you limit the scope of user, role, and capability
  management that these users can perform.
* When you set 'grantableRoles', a user that holds a role with the
  'edit_roles_grantable' and 'edit_user' capabilities can do only the
  following with regards to access control management for the Splunk
  Enterprise instance:
  * They can edit only the roles that contain capabilities that are a 
    union of the capabilities in the roles that you specify 
    with this setting.
  * Any new roles that they create can contain only the capabilities 
    that are a union of these capabilities.
  * Any new roles that they create can search only the indexes that
    have been assigned to all roles that have been specified with 
    this setting.
  * They can see only users who have been assigned roles that contain
    capabilities that are a union of these capabilities.
  * They can assign users only to roles whose assigned capabilities are a
    union of these capabilities.
* For this setting to work, you must assign a user at least one role 
  that:
  * Has both the 'edit_roles_grantable' and 'edit_user' capabilities
    assigned to it, and
  * Does NOT have the 'edit_roles' capability assigned to it.
* Example:
  Consider a Splunk instance where roles role1-role4 have the
  following capabilities:
  
  role1: cap1, cap2, cap3
  role2: cap4, cap5, cap6
  role3: cap1, cap6
  role4: cap4, cap8

  And users user1-user4 have been assigned the following roles:
  user1: role1
  user2: role2
  user3: role3
  user4: role4

  If you define the 'grantableRoles' setting as follows for 
  the 'power' role:

[role_power]

  grantableRoles = role1;role2

  and edit the role so that the 'edit_roles_grantable' 
  capability is selected, and the 'edit_roles' capability
  is not selected,
  
  then a user that has been assigned the 'power' role can make only
  the following access control changes on the instance:
  * View or edit the following users: user1, user2, user3
  * Assign the following roles: role1, role2, role3
  * Create roles with the following capabilities: cap1, cap2, cap3,
    cap4, cap5, cap6
* Only the 'admin' role holds the 'edit_roles_grantable' capability on
  a new Splunk Enterprise installation.
* If you make changes to the 'admin' role, 'grantableRoles' is set to
  "admin".
* This setting does not work if you use tokens to authenticate into a
  Splunk Enterprise instance.
* Default (if 'admin' role is edited): admin
* Default (otherwise): not set

srchFilter = <semicolon-delimited list>
* A list of search filters for this role.
* To override any search filters from imported roles, set this to "*", as
  the 'admin' role does.
* By default, Splunk software does not perform search filtering.

srchTimeWin = <integer>
* Maximum time span, in seconds, of a search.
* This time window limit is applied backwards from the latest time
  specified in a search.
* To override any search time windows from imported roles, set this to "0"
  (infinite), as the 'admin' role does.
* "-1" is a special value implying that no search window has been set for
  this role.
    * This is equivalent to not setting the 'srchTimeWin' setting at all,
      which means it can be easily overridden by an imported role.
* By default, searches are not limited to any specific time window.

srchDiskQuota = <integer>
* The maximum amount of disk space, in megabytes, that can be used by search
  jobs for a specific user with this role.
* In search head clustering environments, this setting takes effect on a
  per-member basis. There is no cluster-wide accounting.
* The dispatch manager checks the quota at the dispatch time of a search.
  Additionally, the search process checks the quota at intervals that are defined
  in the 'disk_usage_update_period' setting in limits.conf as long as the
  search is active.
* A user can occasionally exceed the quota because the search process does
  not constantly check the quota.
* Exceeding this quota causes the search to be auto-finalized immediately,
  even if there are results that have not yet been returned.
* Default: 100

srchJobsQuota = <integer>
* The maximum number of concurrently running historical searches that a user
  with this role can have.
* This setting excludes real-time searches. See the 'rtSrchJobsQuota' setting.
* Default: 3

rtSrchJobsQuota = <integer>
* The maximum number of concurrently running real-time searches that a user
  with this role can have.
* Default: 6

srchMaxTime = <integer><unit>
* The maximum amount of time that search jobs from specific users with this role are
  allowed to run.
* After a search runs for this amount of time, it auto-finalizes.
* If the role inherits from other roles, the value of the 'srchMaxTime' setting is
  specified in the included roles.
* This maximum value does not apply to real-time searches.
* Examples: 1h, 10m, 2hours, 2h, 2hrs, 100s
* Default: 100days

srchIndexesDefault = <semicolon-separated list>
* A list of indexes to search when no index is specified.
* These indexes can be wild-carded ("*"), with the exception that "*" does not
  match internal indexes.
* To match internal indexes, start with an underscore ("_"). All internal indexes are
  represented by "_*".
* The wildcard character "*" is limited to match either all the non-internal
  indexes or all the internal indexes, but not both at once.
* If you make any changes in the "Indexes searched by default" Settings panel
  for a role in Splunk Web, those values take precedence, and any wildcards
  you specify in this setting are lost.
* No default.

srchIndexesAllowed = <semicolon-separated list>
* A list of indexes that this role is allowed to search.
* Follows the same wildcarding semantics as the 'srchIndexesDefault' setting.
* If you make any changes in the "Indexes" Settings panel for a role in Splunk Web,
  those values take precedence, and any wildcards you specify in this setting are lost.
* No default.

deleteIndexesAllowed = <semicolon-separated list>
* A list of indexes that this role is allowed to delete.
* This setting must be used in conjunction with the 'delete_by_keyword' capability.
* Follows the same wildcarding semantics as the 'srchIndexesDefault' setting.
* No default.

cumulativeSrchJobsQuota = <integer>
* The maximum total number of concurrently running historical searches
  across all members of this role.
* For this setting to take effect, you must set the 'enable_cumulative_quota'
  setting to "true" in limits.conf.
* If a user belongs to multiple roles, the user's searches count against
  the role with the largest cumulative search quota. Once the quota for
  that role is consumed, the user's searches count against the role with
  the next largest quota, and so on.
* In search head clustering environments, this setting takes effect on a
  per-member basis. There is no cluster-wide accounting.
* No default.

cumulativeRTSrchJobsQuota = <integer>
* The maximum total number of concurrently running real-time searches
  across all members of this role.
* For this setting to take effect, you must set the 'enable_cumulative_quota'
  setting to "true" in limits.conf.
* If a user belongs to multiple roles, the user's searches count against
  the role with the largest cumulative search quota. Once the quota for
  that role is consumed, the user's searches count against the role with
  the next largest quota, and so on.
* In search head clustering environments, this setting takes effect
  on a per-member basis. There is no cluster-wide accounting.
* No default.

federatedProviders = <semicolon-separated list>
* List of federated providers that the role can access.
* Allows a user to run federated searches defined in the savedsearches.conf file. This
* setting must be used in conjunction with fsh_search capability.
* Defaults to none.

# Capabilities are added to roles to which users are then assigned.
# When a user is assigned a role, they acquire the capabilities added to that role.
####

[tokens_auth]

* Settings for token authorization.

expiration = <relative-time-modifier>|never
* The relative time when an authorization token expires.
* The syntax for using time modifiers is:
  * [+]<time_integer><time_unit>@<time_unit>
  * Where time_integer is an integer value and time_unit is relative
  * time unit in seconds (s), minutes (m), hours (h) or days (d) etc.
* The steps to specify a relative time modifier are:
  * Indicate the time offset from the current time.
  * Define the time amount, which is a number and a unit.
  * Specify a "snap to" time unit. The time unit indicates the nearest
    or latest time to which your time amount rounds down.
* For example, if you configure this setting to "+2h@h", the token expires at
  the top of the hour, two hours from the current time.
* For more information on relative time identifiers, see "Time Modifiers" in
  the Splunk Enterprise Search Reference Manual.
* The default value indicates that a token never expires. To set token
  expiration, you must set this value to a relative time value.
* Your account must hold the admin role to update this setting.
* This setting is optional.
* Default: never

disabled = <boolean>
* Disables and enables Splunk token authorization.
* Defaults to true.
