File System Analytics RBAC

Hello fellow admins! I want to create a role that allows login to System Manager + full File System Analytics functionality but no other rights. I am having difficulty and could use some advice!

 

The first KB below describes creating a role like the one I want, but it doesn't work. To simplify, I gave the role "All File System Analytics operations" rights, using /*/ for the UUID. I created the domain account with the http, ontapi, and ssh applications. When trying to log in, I just got the spinning 'wait' icon with no error and no end in sight.

 

The second KB mentions the new built-in admin-no-fsa role which is actually to restrict FSA, however I thought it might help to see what it does so I could tweak a copy. I logged in this time but had too many admin rights, plus  the two areas of FSA that should have been read only were not visible.

 

Any recommendations?

In case anyone searches for this, the solution ended up being a recreation (partly) of the 'readonly' role, then ADDING all of the FSA rights listed in the KB! I had to recreate the role using the security rest-role create command, and it didn't 100% match readonly, but it worked! I am able to log on with my test account and view all of the FSA content!
