Administrative Roles

This section describes Cortex XDR administrative roles.
Role-based access control (RBAC) enables you to use pre-configured roles to assign access rights to administrative users. You can manage roles for all Cortex apps and services in the Cortex hub. By assigning roles, you enforce the separation of access among functional or regional areas of your organization.
Each role extends specific privileges to users. The way you configure administrative access depends on the security requirements of your organization. Use roles to assign specific access privileges to administrative user accounts. The built-in roles provide specific access rights that cannot be changed.
The specific roles that you can assign for Cortex XDR users are as follows:
Hub roles
