Sharing and permissions

Connection permissions can be managed

  1. with repository actions and
  2. with the special connection manager group.

Those two approaches are outlined in the following sections.

Repository access

Connections are repository items and thus can be managed in the same way. The only restriction is that they can just be stored within the pre-defined /Connections folder which is automatically created when RapidMiner Server is started for the first time.

If you like to share connections with multiple users or groups, please use the existing repository access rights. The following image illustrates an example where the user anotherUser is granted read access.

This user is now able to view the shared connection within their connections overview. If some parameters are set to injected, anotherUser can now set them and use the connection.

Another way of sharing is just to copy an existing connection repository item to another location.

Special group 'connection manager'

Besides the standard repository actions there is a special group called connection manager. Only users with this group are allowed to create connections. This is useful if you like to restrict connection creation to special users and others should just be allowed to use them with their injected parameter values.
