Hi,

The IT security guy here wants to review the splunk roles/users. I there any way by which I can give him access to Access Controls without giving the admin role.

Thanks

For a self-service solution, maybe giving him read access to Splunk on Splunk would work; its Configuration File Viewer feature is great and it would allow him to see config files for search peers as well.

However, it's not clear whether some of the scripts in S.o.S might expose some undesirable functions; maybe someone from Splunk can comment on how safe it is to present S.o.S to non-admin users. On my installs it defaulted to "Everyone" read/write; I later changed that, but hopefully it is safe by default.

You could simply use "splunk cmd btool authorize.conf list" and give him the output of that, which will show the role definitions.
