Keep your data teams organized and efficient by ensuring every user can modify the right assets!
For organizations with various types of users accessing Zeenea, it doesn’t make sense to give everyone full access to modify anything and everything in the catalog. It’s for this reason that we’ve refined our permission model and catalog management to allow you to increase efficiency for your organization and reduce the risk of errors.
In Zeenea Data Catalog, we distinguish between users and contacts:
- Users: A User can connect to and explore Zeenea Catalog.
- Contacts: A Contact is a person or company who is referenced in Zeenea and can be linked to an Item of the catalog.
A person can both be a user and a contact. Let’s explain.
A user is a physical person with read or write access to the Catalog.
Each user is associated with a set of permissions that determines the set of editing and administrative rights that this person will have on the catalog, depending on their role in the company.
You can create and search for users directly in the Users and Contacts section of the Administration part of Zeenea.
