Manage permissions for the Upgrade Readiness App
After you install the Upgrade Readiness App, you must grant permissions to any roles other than admin that you want to allow to run scans.
To edit app permissions in Splunk Cloud Platform, you must have the sc_admin role. To edit app permissions in Splunk Enterprise, your role must hold the admin_all_objects capability. The admin role holds this capability by default.
To grant permission to roles to run scans, follow these steps:
- In Splunk Web, click the gear icon.
- In the row for the Splunk Python Upgrade Readiness App, click Permissions.
- Under App permissions, select the check box under Write for all roles that you want to grant permission to run scans.
- Click Save.
For details on running scans, see Scan a Splunk platform instance with the Upgrade Readiness App.
