Security overview #

Starburst Galaxy includes a built-in, role-based access control (RBAC) system to implement your security needs. It makes it easy to configure the correct access rights to Starburst Galaxy, the clusters, and the configured catalogs with the data from the data sources for every user.

Roles and privileges provide fine-grained control that protects your data, allowing you to define just the right mix of allowed actions and access for each function in your organization.

A role has a name and an optional description, and can be assigned privileges on entities like catalogs and clusters. Users are assigned one or more roles.

You can manage users, roles, and privileges in the Account section of Starburst Galaxy.

Access to the Starburst Galaxy user interface, and directly to clusters with clients, is secured with Transport Layer Security and globally trusted certificates.
