Data-Level permissions or Spaces allow users to create multiple environments within a Periscope site. This feature can be managed by connecting different databases or database users to each space. Admins can then control permissions at both, a database and user level.
Note: Spaces are an add-on feature. Please contact your Sales Executive or the Periscope Data Support team for additional information.
Once Spaces have been turned on for a site, a space can be added by choosing the global icon in the sidebar and clicking the green plus-sign in the upper-right hand corner of the pop-up.
Once a new space has been created, the space Tab now allows for easy navigation between each environment.
To access the Directory, choose the "Settings" gear-icon at the bottom of the sidebar, and click on 'Directory' under Account Settings. The Directory allows site admins to view and add spaces, users, and groups at a high-level:
To delete a Space, click on the gear icon for that Space in the Directory and choose 'Remove.'
As an extra layer of security, the admin will be required to type in the name of the Space.
Upon creation, new Spaces do not carry over anything from the initial configuration, including database connections. Admins can add the same database connected on the "Main" space, and can do so with either the same or a different user. This allows for multiple database users with different permissions to be connected to different spaces at the same time.
Entirely new databases can be connected to the space by following our documentation page on setting up connections.
