Restricting Access to "Connect my Data"

Hi Team,

I am working on how to restrict some group of users from creating a connection on the hub. I restricted them to have access to QVD folders only however, data connectors still appears. Please, how do I disable "Connect my data" tab on the hub?

Re: Restricting Access to "Connect my Data"

Hi Jerry,

If you want to restrict the right to create new connections you need to modify the security rule "Data Connection". Fir example you can modify the rule as:

((resource.type!="folder") and (user.roles="DataAdmin"))

This rule creates also a new role called "DataAdmin and grant only to the users with this role to create new Connections.

Thank you Vincenzo,

I earlier applied such rule, however the "Connect my data" tab is still showing. I don't want users to see the connectors.

Hi Vincenzo,

Never mind. I am good now. I was using an existing add to test the restriction only to discover that the changes applies to a new app. This is funny.

Thank you

Not applicable

Re: Restricting Access to "Connect my Data"

Hi Jerry & Vincenzo,

Had the same issue using June 2017 edition. What you mention here is KEY! Whenever you edit/disable the existing "Data Connections" security rule, the change applies only for new apps! Does not apply for the existing apps.

This is funny - and in my humble opinion, it is also a bug.

Thanks

You should have a different behavior for the app owner, due to a special security rule. Probably you're using the app owner on the existing app
