You can configure data source permissions for Reporting Engine using the Sources tab of the Services > Config view. This helps manage access control to the data sources by setting the data source permissions. Now, with the ability to add more than one data source for the same Core service, you can configure different permissions for each data source of the same Core service. For example, data privacy officers (DPO) can create a Warehouse source using their credentials, and that allows them to execute reports against the Warehouse while restricting everyone else from being able to use that source.
To configure permissions to data sources:
- Go to (Admin) > Services.
- In the Services list, select a Reporting Engine service.
The Services Config view of Reporting Engine is displayed.
Select the Sources tab.
The Service Config View displays the Sources tab.
- Select the data source for which you want to configure permissions by selecting the checkbox.
The Data Source Permissions dialog is displayed.
- Modify the access permission for different users based on the type of service account of the data source. The permission can be either Read Only or No Access.
The required permissions are configured for the data source. For more information, see the Reporting Guide.
