Row-level permission control of Quick BI allows you to perform authorization based on users/user groups or tags. Authorization based on users or user groups is suitable for scenarios that involve a small number of users. This topic describes how to grant permissions to users or user groups.


A dataset is created. For more information, see Create a dataset.
