Statistics Store Authorizations and Administrative Profiles

By default, any user can read and record any data in the statistics store. Some other operations, such as reading sensitive data, require additional authorization. The following authorizations are available for operations on the statistics store. See the sstore-security(7) and sstore-authorized-user(7) man pages for more information. The root user or role has all solaris authorizations. See Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.4 for more information about authorizations, roles, and rights profiles.
