  • Share credentials: When selected, the credentials that are specified in the owner's connection definition are shared with other users. 

    Info

    NOTE: Password values are always masked in the interface.

  • Do not share credentials: When this option is selected, users of the shared connection must provide their own credentials.

    Info

    NOTE: To use datasets previously imported through the shared connection, these credentials must provide access the source data.

  • The credentials specified in the connection are shared to the users who are specified in the Share dialog for connections.
    • Users of a shared connection with credentials cannot insert their own credentials. They must create a new connection.
  • Sharing of credentials may not guarantee access to the same locations as available to the owner. Examples:
    • If your deployment uses Single Sign On, your enterprise login may provide access controls to the same resource that are different from the connection owner.
    • Network infrastructure may whitelist IP addresses for some users and block the same addresses for others.
    • Depending on the datastore, folder or directory permissions may limit access.
    • For more information, please contact your IT administrator.
  • The owner of the connection can specify whether credentials are shared or not.
    • A workspace administrator has owner-level access to all connections in the workspace. However, a workspace admin cannot access or use a connection's credentials if those credentials were not shared by the owner of the connection. For more information, see Workspace Admin Permissions. 
  • Shared users of the connection can share the connection if they have Editor privileges.
