Enable Permission for Data Source Admin to Add Sources

Alation Cloud Service Applies to Alation Cloud Service instances of Alation

Customer Managed Applies to customer-managed instances of Alation


Alation Cloud Service customers can request server configuration changes through Alation Support.

A Server Admin can set the following flag to True in alation_conf to enable permission for the Source Admin to add and configure the Sources:

alation_conf alation.roles.allow_source_and_catalog_admins_to_create_ds -s True

No restart is required after setting the flag.

Once the flag is set to true, Source Admin can use the Add button on the Sources page to add and configure a new Source.
