Data Level Security is a fundamental aspect of any comprehensive security strategy, focusing on protecting data at its most granular level. By implementing Data Level Security measures, organizations can control access to sensitive data, enforce privacy policies, and mitigate the risk of unauthorized access or data breaches.

Using Data Level Security-

  1. RubiSight provides a Data Level Security feature, which helps to restrict access to the data in dashboards.
  2. You can define column-level access on the database, which will show data of only the allowed columns.
  3. To use Data level security, you first need to create a dataset (access master) that stores the information about users and groups and the corresponding data fields they are allowed to access.

Creating Access Master Dataset-

  1. To create an access master dataset, follow the steps given below.Create a CSV or Excel file of the format: user info and names of columns from the datasets used in the dashboard.
  2. In each individual dataset column names, specify the names of data values to which access is to be granted to the user.

  2. Open the Dashboard in edit mode.
  3. The Dashboard is displayed. On the function pane, in the top right corner, click Data Level Security. Data Level Security page is displayed.
  4. Select the dataset from Dataset To configure drop-down. Here, select the name of the dataset created in Creating Access Master Dataset. The columns in the selected dataset are populated.
