Tip | Creating a permissions model based on user types#

Before setting up groups in the platform, you should work with relevant teams in your organization to identify the different end-user types. You should start with a small number of groups, around two to four.

When setting up your model, pay special attention to those permissions that create elements for other platform users, like projects, code environments and managed clusters. Those permissions should only be assigned to a small number of people to maintain a clear structure on the platform.

For example, an organization might have three user groups with the following access needs:

  • Administrators who configure and maintain the installation and need full access

  • Visual users who only need to view and share dashboards

  • Data scientists and analysts who need to create, complete and share projects using code
