Access Control (default)

Dots has the following default roles:

  • Admin: Admins have all possible rights, including granting or revoking rights from other users and altering other people’s slices and dashboards.
  • Alpha: The alpha role is for users who need permissions to add or alter tables in any databases. It is suitable for users who want to create new tables, charts, and dashboards
  • Gamma: The gamma role is for users who need permissions to view and create charts and dashboards. These users will need customized roles that give them read permissions on data sources. Data source access only gives them view permissions on charts and dashboards, without any ability to alter them. But, they can create new charts for permitted data sources.
  • sql_lab: The sql_lab role grants access to SQL Lab. Note that while Admin users have access to all databases by default, both Alpha and Gamma users need to be given access on a per database basis.

  • Public: This role is used for unregistered users. By default, the public role has no permissions.
