Data Catalog - Non Administration User

I am not able to assign "only read" privileges to a user in the Denodo Catalog. Is there any combination where the "Administration" tab in the Denodo Catalog menu does not appear? In our project we do not want the regular users being able to change the log or the background image.

Hi In Denodo, the credentials and privileges the users have in Data Catalog are the same they have in Virtual DataPort Administration Tool. If I want to only assign ‘Read’ privilege to a user, I would the following the steps in Virtual DataPort Administration Tool: * Navigate to *File>Administration>User Management*. * I will select the user and assign only the ‘Connect’ and ‘Execute’ privilege(metadata privilege assigned automatically) and click ‘Ok’. * Now, when the user logins to the Data Catalog, the user cannot see the ‘Administration’ tab in the Data Catalog menu. For more information, you can have a look at the documents [Creating Users](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/7.0/vdp/administration/databases_users_and_access_rights_in_virtual_dataport/administration_of_databases_users_roles_and_their_access_rights/creating_users#creating-users) and [Modifying and Deleting Users](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/7.0/vdp/administration/databases_users_and_access_rights_in_virtual_dataport/administration_of_databases_users_roles_and_their_access_rights/modifying_and_deleting_users#modifying-and-deleting-users) of the Virtual DataPort Administration Guide. Hope this helps!

Hi Denodo Team, I have followed the steps provided on your answer: 1st. Create a new user. 2nd. Grant connect, write an medatadata privileges. Note: No additional privileges are granted. The result is that, when I connect to Data Catalog web tool using credentials for this new user, I can see the "Administration" tab on the Catalog menu. Could you please help with this? Thanks in advance!

Hi When I connect to the Data Catalog using the credentials of the user having only ‘read’ privilege, I cannot see the Administration tab in the Data Catalog menu. The administration tab can be viewed and accessed only by users having Data Catalog roles such as data_catalog_admin. So I would like you to check if you have assigned any Data Catalog roles. For more information, you can have a look at the document [Administration](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/7.0/vdp/data_catalog/administration/administration#administration) of the Data Catalog Guide. Hope this helps!
