Documentation FAQsHow do I add users and configure access management?Data Warehouse Access After new users log into the Avalanche platform, they will see only the data warehouses they own or have access to. Therefore, the warehouse list will be empty when a new user logs in. To access existing warehouses, you must GRANT rights on the Warehouse. Learn more about granting warehouse access to users. You may also create a user from the Query Editor panel in the Administrative DB: iidbdb Sample SQL: CREATE USER 'user123’ WITH PASSWORD=’pswd123’, profile=useradmin, group=dbadmingrp; Table Access By default, a user does not have access to tables in a warehouse unless they own the warehouse or create the tables. A best practice is to create groups of users and assign table access via groups. Sample SQL: GRANT SELECT ON TPCH.supplier TO PUBLIC; GRANT SELECT ON TPCH.supplier TO user123; Learn More: Groups and Roles CREATE GROUP ALTER GROUP Column Restrictions and Masking Column masking (data masking) lets you assign the MASKED attribute to columns so that unprivileged users cannot view the data.
