Defining Targets

Defining Targets

You should define Targets in each policy that are used inside the Access Management module (AM). Targets can be users or things (scripts). 

Targets are to whom or to what you are giving the permissions.

Currently, you can only select RunUser as Targets.

You can add more Targets as wished. An operation OR is applied. Therefore, as you add more targets the options will be more inclusive, like:   'Apply the permissions below for the users using this tag OR this tags OR ....' 

RunUser represents the person or organization that signed up in your Run application - they are shown in your list of Users.

Type of Fields

Target matching is performed in one of these ways:

  1. ID =  select a specific user from the list
  2. Tag =  match using tags from users
    • Tags are composed of two fields: Tag key and Tag value
    • You can manually edit the tags for each user, or run scripts for that. Learn more about User Management
    • For example, Joe Doe has a Tag key = user_level, and Tag value=supervisor. If you create a policy with Targets using the same tags, the selected permissions will be granted for Joe Doe.

  3. Tag Match=  the match is automatically by searching for those tags presented in the Dashboard and USERS.  The Tag Match option reduces the number of policies as you can create a single Policy that would grant access to all users that match the same tags of the dashboards.
  4. ANY = all your users will be automatically included.
