Use a data policy when you want to apply row-level security to one or more tables in the connection. Data policies apply to both live and extract connections.

A data policy has three main components:

An example of the three components of a data policy

  1. The tables it applies to, called policy tables. These are the tables that are filtered.
  2. The mapped columns that define the relationships between tables (for example, between entitlement and fact tables) and between table columns and policy columns. A policy column is the column used to filter data.
  3. The policy condition, which is an expression that is evaluated for every row at query time. When TRUE, the row is shown in the query.
