  2. In the Workspaces Owned/Managed by Me section, click the workspace for which you want to manage permissions on MaxCompute tables.

  4. If you turn on the switch in the Preview Tables in Production Environment column, the Attention message appears. To turn on the switch, you must click I already know that I am sure to open it.
    Note
    • If the workspace is in basic mode, you can turn on or off only the switch in the Preview Tables in Production Environment column.
    • After the switch in the Preview Tables in Production Environment column is turned on, all members of the workspace can preview MaxCompute tables in the production environment without requesting permissions. This may cause the leak of sensitive data. Therefore, use caution before you turn on the switch.
