Pass-Through Security with Data Object Caching

Pass-Through Security with Data Object Caching

To use data object caching with pass-through security, you must enable caching in the pass-through security properties for the Data Integration Service.
When you deploy an SQL data service or a web service, you can choose to cache the logical data objects in a database. You must specify the database in which to store the data object cache. The Data Integration Service validates the user credentials for access to the cache database. If a user can connect to the cache database, the user has access to all tables in the cache. The Data Integration Service does not validate user credentials against the source databases when caching is enabled.
For example, you configure caching for the EmployeeSQLDS SQL data service and enable pass-through security for connections. The Data Integration Service caches tables from the Compensation and the Employee databases. A user might not have access to the Compensation database. However, if the user has access to the cache database, the user can select compensation data in an SQL query.
When you configure pass-through security, the default is to disallow data object caching for data objects that depend on pass-through connections. When you enable data object caching with pass-through security, verify that you do not allow unauthorized users access to some of the data in the cache. When you enable caching for pass-through security connections, you enable data object caching for all pass-through security connections.
