Sumo Logic

Understand Default User Roles

There are two built-in roles in a Sumo Logic account: Administrator and Analyst


The Administrator role is a super user. It has all of the capabilities that can be assigned to a role, as listed on Role Capabilities, and its role search filter enables access to all data in Sumo Logic. The Administrator role cannot be edited or deleted. 


Users with the Analyst role have a single permission:  View Collectors. Its role search filter enables access to all data in Sumo Logic. 

You can edit the Analyst role filter to change the capabilities assigned to it and to make the role filter more restrictive. You can also delete the role if desired.
