Define a Role

Define a new role in Cortex XSOAR and choose the category permission level. Nested roles, active directory, saml, page access, shifts.
Cortex XSOAR comes with three roles with default permissions. You can add as many new roles as you need and combine them with other roles, such as single sign on.
  1. In the
    Roles
    tab, click
    New
    .
  2. In the
    Role name
    field, type the name for the new role.
  3. To assign the role to an active directory group, in the
    AD Roles Mapping
    section, from the drop down list, select the group as required.
  4. To assign a role to a single sign on group, in the
    SAML Roles Mapping
    section, from the drop down list, select the group as required.
    To associate roles to an AD or SAML group, you need to add a SAML instance and configure your identity provider.
    Users can log into Cortex XSOAR with their Active Directory or SAML user name and passwords. Their permission in Cortex XSOAR is set according to the groups and mapping set in Active Directory or SSO. For more information, Authenticate Users with SAML 2.0.
  5. If you want to associate the role with another role, in the
    Nested Roles
    section, from the drop down list, select the nested role, as required.
    The
    Nested Role
    overrides any settings you select in the
    Roles
    tab. If you add a nested role, the role has both the nested role permissions and its own permissions. For example, if when editing Role A’s permissions, in the
    Nested Role
    section, you add Role B, Role A has both the permissions of Role B and the permissions of Role A.
  6. To add a shift periodshift period of work to the role, in the
    Shifts
    field, click
    + Add Shift
    and define the required period.
