Dashboard Access Control

By Sisense

The Dashboard Access Control add-on is an advanced dashboard sharing tool.

Using the Dashboard Access Control you can:

  • Request access to dashboards that are not shared with them, based on the add-on and dashboard configurations
  • Get email notifications for relevant access request updates
  • Manage access requests: approve or reject a request, comment on a request
  • Rebrand emails

Dashboard owners and Administrators can allow or prevent users from requesting access to dashboards from the dashboard menu:

Dashboards that are allowed for access requests are displayed on the dashboard menu with a “lock” icon.

Users can request access to dashboards that have not been shared with them.

Users and access request approvers can manage requests from the “Manage Dashboard Access” windows.

Request actions:

Dashboard Access Control is installed as a Sisense add-on. When you install Dashboard Access Control, the following components are added:

Add-ons Server Side

Dashboard Access Control Interceptor: Returns the dashboard list for the logged-in user. The list will contain the shared dashboards as well as unshared dashboards, based on the configuration of Dashboard Access Control.
