Note

Access to ThoughtSpot data is controlled based on user privileges and object-level permissions. Some operations are available to all users and may require at least view access to the metadata object. ThoughtSpot users are assigned access privileges based on the group to which they belong. Additionally, object owners can control access to a metadata object using MODIFY (Can edit), READ_ONLY (Can view), or NO_ACCESS permission when sharing an object with other users and groups.
