Content Summary: This documentation illustrates the features on the Governance page in the Immuta UI. For details about concepts relating to Governors or for specific instructions for managing tags, running reports, or creating Global Policies, see the linked Governor guides.

Notifications Tab

This tab contains a list of all activity associated with the Governor, data sources, and Global and Local Policies.

Notifications Tab

Reports Tab

Governors can build reports to analyze how data is being used and accessed across Immuta using this Report Builder. Reports can be based on users, groups, projects, data sources, tags, purposes, policies, and connections within Immuta.

For detailed information on how to run reports, please see the Reports section of the Governor Guide.

Reports Tab

Global Policies Tab

Global Policies limit who can access data sources across Immuta. Governors build Global Policies using either the Subscription Policy Builder or the Data Policy Builder. When Governors indicate where policies should apply, the policies will automatically be enforced on the relevant data sources. Otherwise, Data Owners can select the Global Policies by name and apply them to their data sources.

Global Policy Tab

Tags Tab

Governors can create tags or import external tags that Data Owners can then apply to projects, data sources, and data source columns.

Tags Tab

Purposes Tab

Governors manage purposes for data use across Immuta. After creating a purpose, Governors can customize acknowledgement statements that users must agree to before accessing a project or data source. Project owners also have the ability to create purposes, and these purposes will populate in a list in the left panel of the Purposes tab on the Governance page as well.

Purposes Tab

Settings Tab

The Settings window allows Governors to change settings for the use of purposes within projects. If a setting is changed that affects all users, each project owner will receive notifications for any activities that are out of compliance with the changes.

The Default Acknowledgement window allows Governors to customize the default acknowledgement statement that all members of projects have to affirm. Additionally, these statements can be customized for each project in the Purposes tab.
