Overview

It is common for organizations to host data of various security profiles. Some data may be publicly available to anyone on the internet, some data may require individuals to assert their identity or fill out paperwork, and some data may only be available to a handful of individuals who are prevented from ever exporting or downloading the data.

Redivis makes it easy for organization administrators to define, manage, and audit access rules across these various use cases.

Defining access

All interactions with data on Redivis require the user to have the appropriate access level to the data for a given action. There are five data access levels on Redivis: "none", "overview", "metadata", "data", and "edit". You can read more about the different access levels and their implications in the dataset access documentation.

The rules for accessing a given dataset are defined by the permission group that the dataset belongs to. In order for a user to achieve a given level of access to a dataset, they must first complete all requirements defined on the corresponding permission group for that level of access.

Even once an individual has full data access, it is possible to define various restrictions to modulate and/or prevent how data is used and whether it can move to systems outside of Redivis.
