Create a security incident administrator group

Before you begin

Roles required:
  • If you have the user_admin role, you can create security incident assignment groups.
  • If you have the sn_si.admin role, you can create and edit security incident assignment groups.

After system configuration has been completed, and security roles have been assigned to users, a user with the sn_si.admin role can revoke the System Administrator's access to Security Incident Response by setting the The security application is unlocked for admin to access property to false (uncheck the check box).
