Who has access to what?

Background / Value

Data owners and managers know who should have access to which resources. Full transparency is very important especially for directories containing sensitive information. The report "Who has access to what?" gives you a full overview of all access rights (for example "read only" and "write") including users who can execute these access rights.


The report allows responsible managers to make information based decisions in order to answer two central questions:

Who should have access to what? (Increase in data security)

Which access rights should exist? (improvement of data integrity)
