Attributes and Groups in Immuta

Audience: System Administrators

Content Summary: System Administrators manage users and their permissions, attributes, and groups. This page defines and explains how attributes and groups work in Immuta.

Best Practice: Identity Access Management

Organize user attributes and groups in Immuta and then transfer them to your IAM.

Attributes

Attributes can be added to individual users or groups and then included in Data policies and Subscription policies to restrict what data users can see. They can be created by a User Admin in the Immuta UI or mapped in from an external IAM.

Groups

Individual users are added into groups, and then groups are used in Data policies and Subscription policies to restrict what data users in each group can see. Groups are also used in assigning members to projects. Users can belong to any number of groups and can be added or removed from groups at any time.
