Users, Groups, and Roles

Dremio's user and group management has two modes: Internal (default) and LDAP.


Dremio manages users. Users are configured through the UI under Admin > Users. Groups are not available in this mode.


Users and groups are managed by external LDAP server.


By default, everyone is given the User role. Users and groups can be assigned to be Administrators in the UI under Admin > Administrators.

Add Administrators by their usernames or group names on Admin > Administrators.


Users can:

  • Create, edit, and delete spaces
  • Create, edit, and delete virtual datasets
  • Query or edit formatting of physical datasets
