Configuration File for user to roles mapping

Path Finder

Hi All,

I have a requirement where i need to know the following:

I'm creating a new user with a login name "Test1" and assigning him "RoleA" , "RoleB" and "RoleC"

Now i need to know is there any configuration file which has this mapping?

User --> Roles Mapping.

There is a file "authorize.conf" which has what permissions does that roles have.

Please provide your inputs.

Hi ppurokit

if you use Splunk built-in authentication you'll find this user -> role mapping in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/passwd.
If you use LDAP authentication you'll find the user -> role mapping in authentication.conf

hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS
