Access Control in Attribution AI

Access control for Attribution AI is provided through Adobe Experience Platform in the Adobe Admin Console. This functionality leverages product profiles in Admin Console, which link users with permissions and sandboxes.

For more information on access control, see the access control overview.

Attribute-based access control

Attribute-based access control is currently available in a limited release only.

Attribute-based access control is a capability of Adobe Experience Platform that enables administrators to control access to specific objects and/or capabilities based on attributes. Attributes can be metadata added to an object, such as a label added to a schema field or segment. An administrator defines access policies that include attributes to manage user access permissions.

This functionality allows you to label Experience Data Model (XDM) schema fields with labels that define organizational or data usage scopes. In parallel, administrators can use the user and role administration interface to define access policies surrounding XDM schema fields and better manage the access given to users or groups of users (internal, external, or third-party users). Additionally, attribute-based access control allows administrators to manage access to specific segments.

Through attribute-based access control, administrators can control users’ access to both sensitive personal data (SPD) and personally identifiable information (PII) across all Platform workflows and resources. Administrators can define user roles that have access only to specific fields and data that corresponds to those fields.

Due to attribute-based access control, some fields and functionalities might have access restricted and be unavailable for certain Attribution AI service models. Examples include, “Identity”, “Score Definition”, and “Clone.”
