Starting in 2023.1, permission to access queries can be controlled in a granular way. You can control access to each query separately by granting permission to view, run, or edit the query to individual users or groups. Prior to this feature, anyone could find and view any query as long as they had access to the underlying data source. Queries could only be hidden by configuring Alation to hide unpublished queries.
