Data Security

Spectrum Technology Platform uses a role-based security model to control access to the system. In the Management Console you can use user-created roles to grant or deny a user permission for accessing various parts of Context Graph. Access control allows you to override permissions defined in the Secured Entity Types - Context Graph settings based on a role or a user.


You create a role using the Secured Entities - Context Graph settings that allows users to view and modify all properties for a model. You then want to deny access to a specific property, such as "Social_Security_Number", for selected users. To deny access for that property, you would create an access control that overrides permissions defined in the role.

For more information on managing Context Graph security, see Roles, Secured Entity Types - Context Graph, and Access Control in the Spectrum Technology Platform Administration Guide.
