Ownership of Content for Strong Data Governance
Ownership of content (Datasource, Dataset, Report, and Job) is a powerful concept in Informer 5. It implies quality and confidence in the content. All content in the system has a single Owner. Ownership can be by an individual User or a Team, with the typical scenario being a User owning the content while creating and iterating on it, and eventually passing on Ownership to the Team once finalized. When content is owned by a Team, it represents a credible single source of truth providing for Data Governance.
Ownership is an important part of privilege access management as it implies privileges on the content and determines who can modify an entity. As a result, the content quality is preserved and once shared with others, holds credibility. If the Owner is a User, then the User is considered an Admin for the content with all functional privileges – create, edit, copy, delete. If the Owner is a Team, then the Role within the Team determines the privileges on the content. See Table 1: Team Roles for role definitions and privileges.
