What's new?

  • Within this release, the available modules and functions in Settings are now grouped in the left-hand navigation bar.
  • In the Settings application, you will find a new tab called Policies which you can use to create access policies for your users and assets as well as IDL files (if available in your tenant). These access policies allow you to configure fine-grained access. During the first stage of our roll out we only grant access to the new feature set upon request. To utilize our Resource Access Management service, please contact your sales representative.


Enabling Secure Data Sharing in your tenant will restrict access for every non Tenant Admin user. For this reason we also provide the option of a two-phase roll out which gives you the opportunity to create policies before access enforcement is enabled.
