As an administrator, you grant access rights to catalog assets using predefined security and data security roles, and steward assignment.

  • Security roles determine which actions a user or group can perform on the catalog assets. There are predefined roles, including Viewer, Editor, Manager and Security Manager.
    Note: In addition to assigning the Editor security role, you must add users to the Producers group to have the write access to all features, depending on your license.
  • Data security roles apply to data sampling and profiling. There are predefined roles, including Data Viewer and Data Manager.
  • Stewards are responsible for objects in the catalog, such as for the definition, purpose and use. They can be assigned to various types of objects, such as glossary categories and terms or database tables. They have at least the Editor security role to work with objects.

The table below describes the actions associated with each type of security roles, data security roles and a steward assignment.
