Insight Security Access Types

Administrators should ensure that Assisted Insights security functions are enabled for users. Yellowfin does so by default. However to enable or disable these functions, follow the steps in this guide. There are three new security access functions associated with this functionality, that appear under the Augmented Data Discovery section.
