Dashboards and reports security

Access to data in an analytical application must be secured or customized based on user role. Birst provides four main types of application security and user access features:

  • Space groups

    Create multiple groups with varying rights and privileges. Users can be assigned to these groups.

  • Report/Dashboard security

    Restrict access to the reports and dashboards through group access controls.

  • Data-level security through data security filters

    Restrict access to specific sets of data rows in the application. This feature is based on a highly flexible and robust model for securing attribute and measure data.

  • Subject Area Access through Custom Subject Areas

    Customize views of attribute columns and measures. This feature is useful to make the application more accessible to business users and restricting access to certain data elements.

See the Birst Online Help for more information about the application security and user access features.
