Data Storage Security

Beginning in Release 6.1, Permission to use a Data Storage can be granted to Group or individual Power Users from these Editors:

  1. Data Storage using a Permissions button
  2. Group > Power User tab > Data Storage section
  3. User > Power User tab > Data Storage section

CAUTION: A Default Data Storage is assigned to every Power User. 

  • If a Power User who ONLY has the default's Permission then creates a new Dataset, the system assigns the default Data Storage
  • Once the Power User has been granted Permission to use at least one other Data Storage, the setting will be visible and the User must choose a Data Storage from the associated drop-down list

Once a Data Storage has been designated for a Dataset, it cannot be changed.

This Permission grants Use Access only; the Power User may not Create or Edit a Data Storage or see the related List Page.  There is no Privilege or Permission that allows a Power User to create/edit Data Storages.
