As an administrator, you grant access rights to catalog objects using predefined security and data security roles, and steward assignment.
- Security roles determine which actions a user or group can perform on the catalog content. There are predefined roles, including Viewer, Editor, Manager and Security Manager.
- 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.
