Permissions Tracer

The Permissions Tracer provides the ability to trace permissions and access controls for a combination of a metadata object and a metadata identity (user or group)

The Permissions Tracer is included in our Metacoda Security Plug-ins software. It is used to easily review the relevant access controls and permissions for the selected identity on the selected object.


  • FEATURES


    Key features in the Permissions Tracer include:
    • Traced Permissions table: listing the relevant access controls and permissions for the selected identity on the selected object.
    • Object Inheritance table: displays a reverse tree, starting with the selected primary object, and showing all of the other objects that the primary object can potentially inherit permissions from.
    • Identity Hierarchy table: displays a tree showing all of the groups that the select primary identity is a member of, including all nested indirect groups, and the implicit PUBLIC and SASUSERS groups.
    • Search facility: click search button to search for and select an object to trace permissions on.
    • HTML export: all of the information available in the Permissions Tracer can be easily exported in HTML format for documentation, audit and troubleshooting purposes.

  • APPLICATIONS


    SAS Platform Administrators will find the Permissions Tracer useful to:
    • Discover the source of effective permissions.
    • Easily document the effective permissions for an object with/without an identity within a metadata security plan. Then regularly verify the current implementation against that plan, identifying any changes or concerns.
