DataHub Roles and Permissions

How Roles Work in DataHub

Every user in DataHub has a role, and a user’s role determines what actions they are authorized to perform. A user’s role is specific to an Organization (Org) and Site. For example, one could have the role of Site User for Org A, and Org Admin for Org B. The roles in DataHub are very simple and are explained below.

Admin vs User Roles

In general, a “user” role means the user can only manage things they create, such as analytics. However, an admin can manage all analytics, and even update an analytic created by someone else. Administrators can also manage DataHub configurations such as integrations.

Site vs Org Roles

In general, a “site” role applies to a single site. For example, a Site Admin only gives a user admin rights to a specific site. However, an Org Admin has admin rights for all sites in the organization.
