Import roles

Builder

Hi,

I want to create a role and import capabilities or index permissions .
Suppose , I have role A which has indexes allowed = dog,cat
I create a role B and say importRoles = A and B has search indexes allowed = fish, chicken.

what index permissions does role B have in final ??
And also the capabilities ?

Will both the search indexes allowed get mixed ? or only the capabilities ??

Thanks,

let's say you have a user=test assigned with roleB, he can search all indexes(including indexes allowed for role A)
capabilities also get mixed: you can check it under settings--->access controls---->roles---->roleB(imported capabilities are from roleA)

check this splunk doc for further explanation...

I don't think there is a difference in this case form 6.5.3 and 7.21...

you could also test it on your local splunk instance creating a user assigning a role(with inherited role)
