This article outlines how Daasity uses Users, Groups, Roles and Model Sets to enable functionality between the Daasity Platform and Looker
Click on the links below to take you to the section where you can learn more how Daasity and Looker interact:
Daasity uses the Looker API to connect the Daasity platform to Looker to setup Groups, Roles and Permissions and push data into Users to enable dynamic population of data within Looker
When Daasity is connected to your Looker instance a group will be created with the name of the account and appear in the Admin -> Groups section of Looker [<merchant>.looker.com/admin/groups]
Editing this group will enable you to add / remove users from this Group that will enable the Roles and Permissions that Daasity has created
When Daasity is connected to your Looker instance a role will be created with the name of the account and appear in the Admin -> Roles section of Looker [<merchant>.looker.com/admin/roles]
The role is used to associate a user to permission and model sets. Daasity assigns all users to the default "User" role and the Model Set that was created
When Daasity is connected to your Looker instance a role will be created with the name of the account and appear in the Admin -> Roles section of Looker [<merchant>.looker.com/admin/roles] under the Model Sets section
This model set will provide the users with access to the models and thus the explores that were automatically created with the initial Looker setup
Users are managed within the Admin -> Users section of Looker [<merchant>.looker.com/admin/users]. You can add and manage Users within this section and assign Groups and Roles. New users should be assigned to the created Groups and Roles to ensure they have the proper access.
All users will have User Attributes. Daasity automatically creates the "SKU Attributes" user attributes which link to the headers in the SKU Attributes BSD. By assigning the user to the Daasity created Groups and Roles the user attributes will be updated on a daily basis.
