Policies in Immuta

Audience: Data Owners and Governors

Content Summary: Policies in Immuta are managed and applied to data sources and projects by Data Owners and Governors to restrict access to data. This section contains tutorials for creating and managing Global Policies and Local Policies for both of these user types.

This page outlines the types of policies users can create and manage in Immuta.

Global and Local Policies

Global Policies are created by Data Governors and apply to all data sources across an organization. In contrast, Local Policies can be created by Data Owners or Data Governors and apply to a specific data source.

Section Content

Global and Local Policies each contain two categories:

  • Subscription Policies: This determines who can request access and has one of four possible restriction levels.
  • Data Policies: Once a user is subscribed to a data source, the Data Policies that are applied to that data source determine what data the user sees.

  • Importing and Exporting Policies: This feature allows Data Owners and Governors to export and import policies as JSON files so they can seamlessly move policies from one system to another, as long as the systems have identical configurations.

  • Default Policies: These are the HIPAA Safe Harbor Policy and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) Policy, which are Global Policies included by default in Immuta.
