Groups

Use Groups to control data and application access for users of your data platform. All users and service accounts must belong to at least one user group.

Namespaces define data centric security access via topic names and wildcards. Different permissions can be applied to each data namespace.

For example:

  • payments* and *inventory will create a virtual namespace for topics starting with payments and topics ending in inventory.
  • * authorizes access to all topics.

Permissions are used to define what users are allowed to do (view only or manage) within a namespace.

There are 3 types of permissions in Lenses:

  1. Data Namespace Permissions
  2. Application Permissions
  3. Admin Permissions
  1. From the Header Bar Menu, go to Admin panel
