Row Level Security


Audience: Administrators Edition: Enterprise


Administrators can limit which field values a user can access on a row-by-row basis by creating Row Level Security (RLS) profiles.

This restriction applies to Excel outputs, boxes on the chart, the Profile, and all other occurrences of the field within the application.


Note: Row Level Security restrictions can impact the way template rules are applied to records. When configuring Views, ensure that you do not create rules using restricted fields. Otherwise, the View may not appear as expected.
