Differentiate the differences between the three levels of permissions and understand the role of Measure Owner and Data Steward
  • Admin Level
  • Power User
  • User

Administrator is the highest level permissions for the application. You can have more than one per tenant. The administrator is allowed to edit and setup all the objects in the system. This includes managing the user base, set up of maps and measures, set up and managing of tools and groups and finally all system settings.

Power User is assigned to a specific map and has administrator rights to that map and any group or tool category that is assigned to them by the administrator. They can also edit and manage any project or presentation. They are in a sense a junior administrator.

User is the lowest permission level. They can view all the information in the system and can edit only what they own. For example, if they are on a project they can make changes to that project. If they own a measure, they can and are responsible for the measure structure and set up.

Measure Owner can be any of the three above permission levels. If you have user level permission, you can only edit and add data to a measure you own. If you have power user permissions, you can edit and add data to your specific measures you own and any measures that are under your responsibilities as a power user of a designated map. Measure Owner that are also administrators can edit and manage any measures that are in the database.

Data Stewards can fall under the same permission levels. Data Stewards role is to input the data. They cannot edit the measures unless they are set to a higher permission level of power user or administrator.
