Metadata Security

Most of the security configuration explained thus far has involved using features that are built into the User Console or involve configuration changes of some kind. However, if you need to restrict access to certain portions of a metadata model that you are using as a data source, the only way to do it is to edit the model with Metadata Editor and add restrictions. The Pentaho metadata model offers table-, column-, and row-level authorization control, so if you need to prevent certain users or roles from accessing it, you can change (and republish) the model accordingly.
