ARCHIVED: User Types in Adaptive Integration

There are three types of Adaptive Integration users:

  • Data analysts are the people who run tasks and work with the imported information in Adaptive Insights. Data analysts may understand data structures and may not be CPAs. They will have knowledge of how to use Adaptive Insights, though this is not a prerequisite.

  • IT users/administrators are high-level users (frequently an administrator) who can set up and edit data sources, loaders, and tasks. IT users must be familiar with the Adaptive Insights and have a substantial understanding of databases and connectivity. These users are granted the data designer role in Integration for configuring data sources, loaders and tasks, then specifying the data to import. This role cannot access the Scripts tab within Integration > Data Designer.

  • Integration Developers are advanced users, who have skills in JavaScript and database programming. They can be provided the Integration developer permission for authoring the JavaScript needed for creating Custom Cloud Data Sources (CCDS). This permission provides access to the JavaScript editor within Integration.

Generally speaking, the IT users provide the initial set up of Adaptive Integration and then work in a maintenance mode, responding to requests for new tasks or different data sources from the data analysts.

IT users can share or restrict edit and launch permissions for data sources, loaders, and tasks with data analysts, as well as with other users and roles.
