Setup Source Access Request

K can be configured to help your data users quickly understand if they have access to specific data assets and also guide them on how to request access.

This knowledge page will explain how to:

  • Setup Source Access Request

  • Disable and Re-Enable Source Access Request

Setup Source Access Request

  • In the pop-out side panel, under Integrations click on Sources

  • For the source that you’d like to setup source access request, click on the Key icon

  • Add details that you want displayed when a user clicks ‘Request Access’

    • Instructions: Explain to the user the process to request and gain access

    • Display Access Roles: If K has loaded access roles about the asset, you can opt to display these roles to the user to assist them in requesting access to the right role

    • Link: Add a link to the workflow tool that you use to manage access requests. Some tools offer the ability to deep link directly to the workflow form to requesting access
