User Role Authorization

Cloudera Data Science Workbench has one major specialized user role across the deployment: site administrators.

Site administrators are superusers who have complete access to all activity on your Cloudera Data Science Workbench deployment. This includes all the configuration settings, projects (private and public), and workloads running on the deployment.

When LDAP or SAML based authentication is used, it is possible to restrict the users who can log into Cloudera Data Science Workbench based on their LDAP/SAML group membership. Additionally, you can specify LDAP/SAML groups that should automatically be granted site administrator privileges when they log in to Cloudera Data Science Workbench.

Apart from site administrators, every other Cloudera Data Science Workbench user is granted access to projects either as a project collaborator or as part of a team. Continue reading to find out how these project and team permissions interact with each other.
