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", "sample" and "data." You can also assign dataset editors who will have data access. You can read more about the different access levels and their implications in the dataset access documentation.

Configuring access

The rules for accessing a given dataset are defined by the configure access modal which is accessible via the right box on any dataset editor page.

You can manage the access configuration multiple datasets together by creating a permission group and assigning it to a dataset in the top section of the configure access modal. A permission group is also the only way for you to use requirements to manage access.

You can also define various usage rules to control how data is used after users have data access. One way to restrict usage is around data export restrictions.
