Hey Everyone,

Column Masking and Row Filtering are powerful tools in CDP that admins can use to implement security rules without creating dozens of views that must be maintained over time. With Column Masking, admins can block or limit the extent of data specific users or groups are allowed to see. If instead an admin needs to limit the rows a user can see, (for example US users can only see data from the USA) Row Filtering can be used. In this video I walk through an example where we limit the amount of data call center employees are allowed to see. I'll show you how we set up these policies in Ranger and what effect it has on the user.
