Workspaces & Access Controls
Role-Based Access Controls (RBAC) & Workspaces give Census users the ability to control which members of the organization can access information or take particular actions.
RBAC provides peace of mind, ensuring only those with appropriate permissions can access sensitive user information or take potentially destructive actions with Census Syncs or Census configuration.
Role-Based Access Controls are available on Enterprise plans only. Professional plans can create up to two Workspaces.
Census Workspaces allow you to manage permissions granularly for different teams or use-cases. Give your Sales team and your Marketing team their own little slice of Census or keep your staging environment separate from prod. The list of Workspaces in your organization is always visible to all members of your organization, but you can control the level of access for members by assigning them a role.
Workspace members each have one of four different roles:
- Owner – This is the default permission for Organization Administrators within a Census Organization. It gives the user access to everything, including managing warehouse & destination connections, API keys, and adding/removing users.
- Editor – This role grants access to most things in the workspaces including adding destination connections, in addition to creating and editing syncs and models.
- Operator – The Operator Role is a special role within Census. It fits between the Editor and Viewer permissions, allowing members with this role to primarily work with Segments. Operators are able to create and edit Audience Hub on top of Entities, as well as manage syncing entities and segments. They won't be able create new models, entities, or modify any existing connections details
- Viewer - The read-only viewer on Census. They can view syncs and segments, and approved models, but cannot modify or take any action within Census.
Census provides sample data when working with models, segments, and syncs to help users understand their data sets, as well as what's being synced. Some organizations may prefer to restrict the ability to preview data to specific tools.
In this case, you can choose to disable the ability to preview data in Census on a per workspace basis. To disable data previews in Census, reach out to your success manager or send an email to Census Support.
