Extended and granulated access security for technical and custom assets in IGC

We are implementing Data Governance solution in an organization with many entities and need an option to secure the access to technical and custom assets from users in different legal entities. At the moment, there is such option just for Glossary items (Categories and terms), but all users with a role different from Basic User can view or even edit (depends on the role) all other assets.

  • Not Under Consideration
Who would benefit from this IDEA? When this suite is imlemented in large organizations it will require extended access and security settings, exceeding the current ones.
How should it work?

There should be an option to restrict access to technical assets and their drill-down to different users/groups, just like it is implemented for Glossary items.

Idea Priority High
Priority Justification Idea is rankeg High, because it is related to complying security requirements in our project of implementing IS with the customer.

    SP2 of Information Server was released, but this functionality is not implemented yet. When can we expect it? What was meant by "next release"?

    Thanks for your suggested idea. We are looking to incorporated finer grained permissions across all Catalog Assets next year, in addition to securig the properties on those assets. In our next release, we will extend such permision to all Governance Assets, including Terms, Policies & Rules.
