Specifying Custom User Attributes

You can define custom attributes for a user definition if you are logged in as a Zoomdataaccount administrator or as a user who is assigned to a group with user management privileges.

Custom attributes provide a way for administrators to store values that can be used for credential pass-through. This means that if users have access to a particular data source that has been connected to Zoomdata, their credentials can be saved on this page so that their access privileges are maintained for that source within Zoomdata.

Custom attributes are defined using the Custom Attributes tab in the user definition editor.

To access the Custom Attributes tab, see Adding User Definitions or Modifying User Definitions. For information on the user definition settings that can be changed on other tabs of the user definition editor, see:
