Providing direct access with the Web UI
Administrators can use the Web UI to give users direct access to Hybrid Data Pipeline. The Web UI allows administrators to create users, assign roles to users, and delete users. The Web UI can also be used to reset user passwords, change user status, search for users, and sort users. Administrators cannot use the Web UI to share data sources or create data sources on behalf of users. Administrators cannot create new roles in the Web UI. However, roles that have been created through the Roles API can be assigned to users through the Web UI. In addition, the Web UI cannot be used to set permissions explicitly on user accounts; the Users API must be used to set permissions explicitly.
Furthermore, in a multitenant environment, administrators are only provided with a view of the tenant to which they belong. Therefore, when using the Web UI, an administrator can only provision user accounts for the tenant to which he or she belongs. For example, even though a system administrator can provision users across any tenant in the system, he or she can only provision user accounts in the system tenant when using the Web UI because a system administrator by definition exists only in the system tenant and the Web UI only displays this tenant to the administrator. The system administrator must use the Users API to provision user accounts for any child tenant.
Similarly, when using the Web UI, administrators who do not have the Administrator (12) permission must belong to the tenant for which they are provisioning users. For example, to provision users in Tenant A via the Web UI, the administrator of Tenant A must belong to Tenant A. (An administrator who administers Tenant A but resides in the system tenant would not be able to view the tenant and provision users through the Web UI. This administrator would have to provision users with the Users API.) Administrators who do not have the Administrator (12) permission must meet these additional requirements.
*Administrative access to the tenant
*WebUI (8) permission
*The permission corresponding to the specific operation. For example, the administrator must have the CreateUsers (13) permission to create a user account, or the DeleteUsers (16) permission to delete a user account.
