Rapid7 Insight Platform Documentation

How can we help?

Product Roles

Within individual products or services, certain user roles have additional capabilities.

Rapid7 Services

Product Role
Capabilities

Product Admin

A Product Admin has access to all functions within their assigned products and services. These actions include:

  • Uploading and removing documents and reports.
  • Commenting on forms and reports.
  • Completing all onboarding actions for any Managed/Consulting services on the Insight platform.
  • Viewing all assigned and unassigned services.
  • Adding existing platform users and manage users within the same product that they administrate.

Read Write

A user with read write access can complete any onboarding actions for the team to which you are assigned, such as completing forms, uploading documents, and removing any owned documents. This user cannot add or manage users.

Read Only

A user with read only access can view the status of the onboarding process, as well as documents or reports from any assigned product or service. This user cannot modify any data,such as filling out forms or uploading documents.

Want a user who can only see reports?

Create a user with a "read only" role without admin privileges if you only want to provide viewing access to reports.

InsightIDR

Product Role
Capabilities

Read Write

A user with read write access can conduct investigations within InsightIDR. The user also has permissions to create, change, and delete his or her own InsightIDR dashboards. This user cannot edit dashboards created by others.

Read Only

A read only role allows for a non-expiring session.

Want your InsightIDR dashboard viewable at all times?

Create a user with a "read-only" role if you want to display your dashboard 24/7, such as in your NOC.

InsightOps

Product Role
Capabilities

Product Admin

This role is required to access the Agent Management (BETA) page. If an account does not have the Collector or Insight Agent, a product admin is the only user that can initially download them.

Additionally, this role can configure settings, such as plan information, API Keys, user roles, S3 archiving, and collector credentials.

Read Write

A user with read write access can add data, view and edit their dashboards, manage and create alerts, and access Analytics Packs.

This user cannot edit dashboards created by others.

If a product admin already installed an initial Collector or Insight Agent, a read write user can download additional ones.

Read Only

This user can access Log Search and Dashboards and can generate reports and view alerts.

This user cannot add data.
