Connection Permissions

Users need connection permissions to generate and run workflows.
Permissions control the level of access that a user or group has on the connection.
You can configure permissions on a cluster configuration object, Hadoop, Hive, and relational connections in the Administrator tool.
You can assign different permission types to users to perform the following actions:
