Users can be directly configured in Metric Insights or integrated with LDAP and/or SAML. There are 3 users types in Metric Insights: Regular (consumers), Power (creators), Administrators (application). Access to content must be granted for Regular User and Power Users. Power Users can additionally be granted access to Data Sources in order to build content. Permission to content can be directly assigned, as well as inherited by any groups the user belongs to.
Elements that have been dimensions further control access – users can have access to non-dimensioned elements, all dimension values, or any subset of specific dimension values. Think of these as controlling how many slices of data any user has access to.
Datasets allow for row-level security through User Maps. Applied to a dataset, a User Map restricts what content any user has by username and row values.
