In the Google Cloud Platform, Identity and Access Management (IAM) allows you to control user and group access to your project's resources. This section describes the IAM permissions relevant to Dataprep by Trifacta and the IAM roles that grant those permissions. To access the IAM console, see https://cloud.google.com/iam.
- A role is a set of one or more permissions. A role is assigned to users and groups.
- A permission grants access to a resource. Different permissions can grant different access levels to the same resource.
Tools for manage IAM policies:
- Google Cloud Console
- gcloud CLI
For more information, see https://cloud.google.com/iam/docs/granting-changing-revoking-access.

Additional permissions may be required to use specific features. Individual users may be required to permit Dataprep by Trifacta access when the feature is first used.
Dataflow job cancellation
This permission is required to cancel jobs on Dataflow from within the Trifacta application. It is not required for the product to work but may be helpful to add via IAM roles.
NOTE: The ability to cancel a job from within the Trifacta application is temporarily disabled. When it is re-enabled, this permission will be required. You should leave this permission enabled, if possible.
NOTE: A user may be able cancel a job from the Trifacta application, even though the user is not permitted to cancel the job in the running environment. The service account associated with the user's Trifacta account may have the appropriate permissions, but the user's personal account does not. For more information, see Google Service Account Management.
BigQuery publishing options
The following permissions are required to publish to BigQuery:
|bigquery.datasets.create||Create datasets in BigQuery|
|bigquery.datasets.update||Update datasets in BigQuery|
The following permission is not required to publish to BigQuery.
If this permission is not granted to a user, that user requires one of the following permissions to drop or truncate table data in BigQuery:
NOTE: If a user does not have this permission when publishing to a table, the user receives a warning that the target dataset is read-only.
BigQuery job execution
To enable execution of jobs in BigQuery, the following permission must be enabled. Additional configuration may be required. For more information on this feature, see BigQuery Running Environment.
|bigquery.jobs.create||This permission enables execution of jobs within BigQuery. It is also used for custom SQL queries, which is enabled by default. In most projects, this permission is enabled by default.|
BigQuery job execution on Base Storage files
If you have enabled execution of jobs in BigQuery, you can extend that capability to execute jobs for data sources hosted in Base Storage. GCS execution in BigQuery requires that external tables be enabled in BigQuery. The following permissions are required to create and use external tables.
Tip: In most projects, these permissions are enabled by default.
- For more information on these permissions, see https://cloud.google.com/bigquery/external-data-cloud-storage#permissions.
- Additional configuration may be required. For more information on this feature, see BigQuery Running Environment.
Enabled in the default Dataprep by Trifacta role.

Additional Permissions for Cloud IAM
NOTE: Any change in a user's permissions in Google Cloud Platform must be reflected in the service account assigned to the user.
Run Dataflow jobs
Every Dataprep by Trifacta job requires the use of a service account through which the job is submitted to Dataflow for execution. Each project user must have access to a service account. For more information, see Google Service Account Management.
In addition to the IAM roles above, users must also be granted the following to enable data access based on their Cloud IAM:
- dataset level permissions in BigQuery: See https://cloud.google.com/bigquery/docs/dataset-access-controls.
- Cloud Storage object ACLs: See https://cloud.google.com/storage/docs/access-control.
These permissions ensure that users can access the appropriate data within Dataprep by Trifacta®.
