Predefined User Roles
for
Cortex
XDR

From the hub, you can use predefined roles to easily assign user access to Cortex XDR views and actions.
Role-based access control (RBAC) enables you to use predefined Palo Alto Networks roles to assign access rights to
Cortex
XDR
users. You can manage roles for all
Cortex
XDR
apps and services in the
Cortex
Gateway and
Cortex
XDR
management console. 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 Palo Alto Networks roles provide specific access rights that cannot be changed, but can be saved as a new role and edited according to your needs.
You can manage role permissions in
Cortex
XDR
, which are listed by the various components according to the sidebar navigation in
Cortex
XDR
. Some components include additional action permissions, such as pivot (right-click) options, which you can also assign access, but only when you’ve given the user
View/Edit
permissions to the applicable component.
The following tables describe the various
Cortex
XDR
components and additional action permissions according to the sidebar navigation that are associated with the Palo Alto Networks predefined roles.
Some features are license-dependent. Accordingly, users may not see a specific feature if the feature is not supported by the license type or if they do not have access based on their assigned role.
