Permissions in Connect are set on the level of a data asset (e.g. folder, homepage...) and are inherited to its children.
These are the following permissions types:

  • Admin: User can perform administrative tasks in Administration Console.
  • Move/Copy: User has the right to remove a data asset (move object from one location into another).
  • Remove: User has the right to remove a data asset and its children.
  • Createchild: User has the right to create a child of a current data asset.
  • Edit: User has the right to edit a data asset.
  • View: User has the right to view a data asset.
  • Createcomment: User has the right to create comments related to a data asset.
  • Editcomment: User has the right to edit comments related to a data asset.
  • Deletecomment: User has the right to delete comments related to a data asset.

Permissions can be assigned to a user or to a group (recommended).
Connect has built-in groups, such as:

  • Administrators: Users with administration permissions.
  • Certifiers: Users with permission to certify assets.
  • Contributors: Default group. Users with editing permission.
  • Readers: Group with basic permissions.

Review or Edit Permission for an Asset

  1. Navigate to a data asset for which you would like to see or change permissions. You can navigate to see the permissions of a folder, subfolder, or directly of a certain data asset.
  2. Select the three-dot menu Menu in the top-right corner, then select Permissions.
  3. A window with a permission table pops up. In the Inherited permission table you can see all the inherited permissions for this data asset. By default, a data asset is set to inherit the permissions of its parent.
  4. Below the Inherited permission table you can see the list of all actions. Select any field to add a user groups or individual users to a permission level.
  5. Once all permission changes have been made, select Save. The changes you made will be visible in the list of all actions.
