Data entitlements quickstart

This page guides you through an example of entitling users to query data from an assembly called sdk-sample-assembly. It assumes that two sample groups, dataScience and dashboardUsers, have been created.

Make sure that you have completed the prerequisites before using this quickstart.

Creating an entitlement

  1. Find the Group IDs provided by Keycloak for the dataScience and dashboardUsers groups.

    To do this, call the kxi entitlement actors command:

    kxi entitlement actors
            "id": "4745c0ae-4ef0-4bba-a310-bd2fc7236484",
            "name": "dataScience",
            "path": "/dataScience"
            "id": "7dcd08d8-28d9-40ae-9d9a-399a3ccc688f",
            "name": "dashboardUsers",
            "path": "/dashboardUsers"
  2. Store each group ID to a variable called $GROUPID1,$GROUPID2.

  3. Store an access level permission for each group to a variable called $ACCESS. This example uses RWX for both groups.
  4. Create a ID for the sdk-sample-assembly. In this example we have generated one a3f7be9f-8bd3-41b0-8c29-c50e19ac3914.
  5. Call the kxi entitlement create command as follows:

    kxi entitlement create $ID $NAME $TYPE --groups $GROUPIDs:$ACCESS
  6. Check the entitlement was created by calling kxi entitlement list or kxi entitlement get.

    In this example we call the get command, passing in the ID of the newly created entity.

    kxi entitlement list
    kxi entitlement get $ID
