Save and share an activity map

You can save an activity map and share it with others. By default, all activity maps that you create are private, which means that no ExtraHop users can view or edit your map. However, you can share your map when you save it by granting view or edit access to other ExtraHop users and groups.

Here are some important considerations about sharing activity maps:

  • How a user interacts with an activity map and the information they can view in the ExtraHop system is determined by user privileges, which are assigned by the ExtraHop administrator. For more information, see the User privileges section in the ExtraHop Administrators Guide.
  • When you grant a user edit access, that user can modify and share the activity map with others. However, other users cannot delete the activity map. Only the map owner can delete an activity map.
  • Group information is imported into the ExtraHop system from LDAP (such as OpenLDAP or Active Directory). User information is available after an ExtraHop user logs in to their account.
  • If you are deleting a user, you will have the option to transfer their activity maps to another user.

The following steps show you how to save and share an activity map:

  1. Log in to the ExtraHop system through https://<extrahop-hostname-or-IP-address>.
  2. Create an activity map.
  3. Click the Save icon in the upper right corner of the page.
  4. Type a name for your map. The name must be unique.
  5. (Optional): Type a description.
  6. (Optional): Change the permalink shortcode to a user-friendly name.
    For example, you can configure a map to display alert statuses and append "/alerts" to the shortcode to let users know that the saved map displays alerts by default.
    Note:The shortcode cannot contain spaces and the shortcode must be unique.
  7. Share your activity map by completing the following steps:
    1. Type a username or group.
    2. Make one of the following selections:
      Type of Access Selection
      ExtraHop users can view Select Can view and then click Add.
      ExtraHop users can both view and edit Click Can view and then click Can edit. Click Add.
  8. Click Save.
    Tip:You can also modify the properties for a saved map by clicking the command menu and then clicking Map Properties. To quickly modify share permissions, click the command menu and then click Share.
