Permissions

Permissions determine the access rights that a user has for a Secure Agent, Secure Agent group, connection, schedule, or asset. Permissions add additional or custom security for an object. Permissions define which users and groups can read, update, delete, execute, and change permissions on the object.
To configure permissions on an object, you need the following licenses and privileges:
To configure permissions on an object, navigate to the object and set the appropriate permissions. For example, you want only users in the Development Team user group to have access to assets in the Development Data folder. Navigate to the folder, edit the permissions, and grant the Development Team user group permissions on the folder.
Permissions apply to the objects for which you configure them but not to copies of the object. Therefore, when you copy or export an asset, the permissions are not copied or exported with the asset. For example, you export a mapping task in which only user rjones has execute permission. When you import the mapping task, the imported mapping has no permissions assigned to it. Therefore, any user with privileges to run mapping tasks can run the imported task.
You can configure the following permissions on an object:
Permission
Description
Read
Open and view the object.
If the object is source controlled, this permission allows the user or group to pull or check out the object from the source control repository.
If you select a task, this permission also allows the user or group to use a connection or schedule in the task.
Update
Edit the object.
If the object is source controlled, this permission allows the user or group to check in, check out, pull, unlink, or roll back the object.
Requires read permission, which is automatically granted.
Delete
Delete the object.
Execute
Run the object.
Applies to mappings, tasks, taskflows, and Cloud Integration Hub assets. Monitor, stop, and restart instances of the mapping, task, or taskflow.
Change permissions
Change the permissions that are assigned to the object.
Note: These permissions control permissions within Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services. They do not control operating system permissions, such as the ability to start, stop, or configure the Secure Agent on Windows or Linux.

Rules and guidelines for permissions

Use the following rules and guidelines for permissions:

Configuring permissions

You can configure permissions on an object if you are assigned a role with the Set Permission privilege for the object type. For example, to configure permissions on a folder, you must be assigned a role that has the Set Permission privilege for folders.
    1. Navigate to the object for which you want to configure permissions.
    For example:
    2. In the row that contains the object, either click Actions and select Permissions, or click the Change Permission icon.
    The Permissions dialog box lists the users and groups that have permissions on the object.
    If the Permissions dialog box lists no users or groups, then no permissions are configured for the object. Any user with appropriate privileges for the object type can access the object.
    The following image shows the Permissions dialog box for a mapping:
    The Permissions dialog box lists the users and groups that have permissions on the object. Users and groups not listed have no permissions on the object. However, if the dialog box lists no users or groups, then there are no permission restrictions on the object.
    3. To configure user permissions on the object:
    1. a. Select Users.
    2. b. If the user does not appear in the Users list, click Add, and select a user.
    3. c. Enable or disable the appropriate permissions on the user.
    Note: When you grant any user permissions on the object, Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services also adds you as a user with permissions on the object. This prevents you from losing access to the object when you configure permissions.
    4. To configure user group permissions on the object:
    1. a. Select Groups.
    2. b. If the group does not appear in the Groups list, click Add, and select a group.
    3. c. Enable or disable the appropriate permissions on the group.
    Note: When you grant any group permissions on the object, Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services also adds you as a user with permissions on the object. This prevents you from losing access to the object when you configure permissions.
    5. To remove all permissions restrictions for the object, remove all users and groups from the Permissions dialog box.
    When you remove all users and groups, any user with appropriate privileges for the object type can access the object.
    6. Click Save.
