Issue/Introduction

When a user has the 'Power User' role assigned in CAPC, that user is unable to drill down and use the Flow Forensics tab within NFA. This issue applies to NFA 10.0 and above.

Environment

Windows Server

Resolution

The Flow Forensics tab can only be used by someone with an NFA administrator role . This is by design. If a power user was able to use the Flow Forensics tab, it would allow them to see data that is outside of their domain (the Flow Forensics tab shows all data coming into a harvester regardless of domain/tenant).

The user should have the Administrator product privilege to the NFA Data Source.
