Data access users

Data access users are identified in the creation and definition of Resource Policies. Users may be included or excluded specifically or in groups.

  • User Source value reflects the method of their creation or import (source).

    • Internal users - created within your Access Management account. Administrative users are Users: 'admin', 'rangerusersync', 'keyadmin', 'rangertagsync', and '{OWNER}' are created by the system.

    • External users:

      • A data access user with the same username as the first 'Administrator'/ Portal user;

      • A 'service' user for each data resource service (e.g. 'hive', 's3', ...);

      • Users imported User Sync with an LDAP or Active Directory.

  • Visibility indicates if a user is listed when creating or editing a Policy in Access Management: Resource Policies. If a user is Visible, they will be found and selectable under "Select User" column. If a user is Hidden, they will not be selectable. This is useful when your account has been synchronized with a user directory with a large number of users. Visibility may be set by selecting a user object row (on the left side of the table, and using the 'Visibility' action (between +Add and Delete).

  • User Role here is one of ('User', 'Administrator', or 'Auditor'). This user Role is different from the custom Roles defined in the User Management: Roles tab.

Use the Search control to limit displayed objects those matching a specific value. First select a column name, then a value. The table will be filtered to show only those objects that match the value. Users objects may be added, edited, or deleted.
