Who should be granted permissions?
Administrators of the have full access over all Data Stream Processor resources and operations. For security purposes, you should only assign the admin role to trusted users who need the highest permissions in order to accomplish tasks required for their jobs. It is also important to understand that by granting them admin-level permissions, you are also granting them access to other resources on your network. pipelines often consume data from internal resources such as servers and databases, and thus the Data Stream Processor admin must have sufficient permissions in order to find and manage this data. Therefore, it's critically important that you restrict the admin role to only trusted users. In addition, for security reasons, you should exercise caution if you choose to make the DSP UI available on a public network.
