How-to | Create a group and assign it global permissions#

In this article we’ll look at default groups built into Dataiku. We’ll also create a new group and set custom global permissions.

Launch Dataiku#

  1. Log in to Fleet Manager.

  2. From Instances, choose All and then locate the instance you want to manage.

  3. Select Go to DSS.


The instance must be provisioned and running.

View default groups#

  1. In your Dataiku instance, choose Administration from the Applications menu.

  2. Navigate to the Security tab.

  3. In the left panel, select Groups.

You should see the three default groups built into each Dataiku instance: administrators, data-team, and readers. You can select each group name to view its settings. This is also where you can change permissions for each group.

Notice the administrator’s group grants all permissions to those in the group, and the instance admin is included in this group by default.

Create a new group#

Let’s say we wanted to create a new group with custom permissions. To do this:

  1. Select +New Group in the top right.

  2. Type a group name.

  3. Enter a description.

  4. Type should be Local.

Assign global permissions#

  1. Based on the permissions model within your organization, select the permissions you want to allow for this group. Refer to the global permissions table to learn more about each permission option.

  2. Click Save in the top right to save your changes.
