Project user access

This is a step-by-step guide to modifying user access permissions for projects within a Matillion ETL instance.


  • Users responsible for user access permissions require access to the Matillion ETL instance and projects.
  • Internal or External security has been enabled on the project with more than one user added.
  • Users must have accessed the project at least once.

Modifying user access permissions

  1. Click ProjectManage Project.
  2. From the Manage Project dialog, locate the Access Control List. This section contains a list of all users registered within the current Matillion ETL instance, and two checkboxes, Public Administration and Public Users.
  3. Modify a user's access permissions in the Access Control List. Permissions:

    Permission Description
    Public Administration Toggle full permissions to all current and new users (full permissions are default, while unticking the checkbox will reveal the user list).
    Public Users Tick Access for all users.
    Admin Grants admin permissions to modify the Access Control List. At least one user must have Admin permissions. Changes cannot be confirmed without this.
    Access Grants access to the project and the jobs therein. Unticking this checkbox will block users from accessing the current project.
  4. Once permissions have been assigned, click OK.


The Matillion ETL instance may need to be restarted for the newly assigned user access permissions to take effect.
