You can set analytics permissions for custom roles from the Analytics tab in the Controller Administration UI.  The tabs referred to here are part of the Administration UI and can be seen when creating a new role.

The Analytics predefined role is the Analytics Administrator. The following screenshot shows the analytics permissions categories. When creating a new role, select the permissions that you want to assign to the new role.

If a user does not have access to a specific application on the Applications tab but has access to Business Transactions for that application on the Analytics tab, they can do all actions for that application in the Analytics screens, except for creating metrics. For the user to create metrics from Analytics searches, you must assign the user to a role with view access to the Analytics Application on the Applications tab.

Asterisks (*) in the permissions tables on this page indicate permissions that should be considered sensitive for security and data privacy purposes. Carefully consider the security and data privacy policies of your organization before granting these permissions. For details on permissions related to Analytics data and functionality, see the links in the More Information column.
