Set User Access Permissions

Exchange provides multiple ways to set up access management to provide collaboration across teams and meet governance requirements. Anypoint Platform comes with predefined permissions and roles that can be set in the Access Management section of Anypoint Platform to provide users with different access levels.

Exchange Permissions

To control access to assets in a business group, add users or teams to role groups for Exchange permissions.

The following permissions pertain to every business group level:

Exchange Viewers

Enables users to view and download assets within a business group. Users with this permission cannot add new assets, edit asset portal content, or share an asset with another user. Assign this permission to those who consume your assets in a specific business group.

Exchange Contributors

Enables users to view, create, and download assets within a business group. Users with this permission can edit asset portal content in an existing asset version. Use this permission to invite users to edit and maintain your asset portal descriptions.

Exchange Administrators

Enables users to view, create, and download assets within a business group. Users with this permission have all the same access as users with the Exchange contributor and Exchange viewer permissions, and access to share an asset with another user, deprecate an asset, and delete an asset. Use this permission to set up Exchange administrators for all the assets within a specific business group.

Asset Permissions

To control access to individual assets, add users or teams to role groups for asset permissions.

The following permissions extend access to assets in addition to the permissions that a user has at the business group level:

Asset Viewers

Enables users to view and download an asset. Users with this permission cannot edit asset portal content or share an asset with another user. Use this permission to invite a user outside your business group to view and download an asset.

Asset Contributors

Enables users to view, add a new version, and download an asset. Use this permission to invite a user outside your business group to view, download, and add edit portal content for an asset.

Asset Administrators

Enables users to view, create, download, deprecate, and delete an asset. Users with this permission have the same access as users with the Exchange Administrators permission, but on only a single asset. This permission is assigned by default to an asset creator. Use this permission to extend administrator permissions to an asset to an additional user.
