Splunk for Enterprise Security: Is it possible to allow non-admin users to create notable events manually?

Good afternoon.

This is related to Enterprise Security 3.1.1 build 219910.

Is it possible to allow a non-admin user to create notable events manually? Currently we are getting a 403 error when they attempt to do so.

Looking at the _internal log I see the following:

"POST /services/receivers/simple?source=Manual%20Notable%20Event%20-%20Rule&index=notable&sourcetype=stash_new&host=server.company.com HTTP/1.0" 403 164 - - - 0ms

Is this because the user doesn't have the indexes_edit capability? Any solutions available that don't involve making the user an admin?

Thank you.

A non-administrator role, such as an ES analyst, needs to have an administrator grant additional permissions to the role, in order to manually create and edit a new notable event.

To add the permissions to the ess_analyst role, an administrator would do the following:

  1. In Splunk Web, choose Settings > Access Controls > Roles.

  2. Click on the ess-analyst role (in the list of roles) to open the editor.

  3. In the "Capabilities" section, add edit_tcp to the Selected capabilities.

  4. Click Save.
