What Are the Key Security Concepts in Metric Insights?
Security is applied to Groups or individual Users by Admins as well as by Power Users with the necessary Privileges and Permissions.
Privilege is a right granted to a Group or individual User that allows the member or User to perform specific Metric Insights functions or use non-configurable methods of fetching data; e.g., Create Folders, Create Datasets, Create Content using CSV files, Maintain Personal Settings.
Permission is a right granted to a Group or individual User that allows the member or User to access content; i.e., data contained in an object. Types of Permissions include:
- Use Access: Allows a Power User to use an object when creating other objects or fetching data: e.g., Configurable Data Sources, Data Collection Trigger
- View Access: Permits a Regular or Power User to see content in an element, Dataset/User Map, Dimension, Category
- Edit Access: Grants a Power User the ability to edit an object using its Editor
