Object Roles and Producers vs. Consumers

A concurrent user license can be split in two maximum limits:

  • Metadata producers who are read-write concurrent users such as data architects, data stewards, data modelers, glossary editors, mapping designers, developers and any advanced users with access to all functionalities.
  • Metadata consumers who are ready-only concurrent users such as data users, analysts, reviewers who can create worksheets/dashboards, add comments/social curation)

With this split license, users are considered to be metadata consumers by default. A user will automatically be designated as a producer, if they have are assigned to any roles with capability assignments that make them a Producer .

Information note

If a user is assigned any role of License type Producer , then they are counted as a Producer, otherwise if all roles they are assigned are Consumer only, then they are counted as a Consumer.

Similarly, if a role has any capability type Producer , then it is of type Producer , otherwise if all capabilities for that role are Consumer only, then it is of type Consumer .

Consumers are those with object capabilities responsibilities to only either view objects or provide feedback .
