Insights permissions overview

  • Updated

The Insights application consists of Dashboards and Analyses. Dashboards enables you to query your data warehouse using SQL and visualize key scientific, operational, and administrative metrics in tables or charts. Analyses enables you to create data tables from your Benchling data. You can transform and chart this data or send it to external tools for further analysis. Users can only view content or make changes if they have the applicable permissions.

Note: Insights is only available to tenants on Enterprise or Industry plans.

How Insights permissions are determined

What users can view and do in Insights depends on the data they have access to based on their project permissions and the organization’s access policies.

Project permissions

To create an Insights dashboard, you must link it to a project. Users and teams with access to that project can view the dashboard and edit the queries based on their project permissions.

For an overview of project permissions and their general access, visit Set project collaborators and permissions.

Access policies

To set up more granular or complex Insights permissions, tenant admins can modify your organization’s access policies. To configure access policies, visit Configure access policies for complex permissions.
