In Sumo, a dashboard's data access level determines what data appears in the dashboard when users with whom the dashboard was shared view it. In effect, the data access level of a dashboard controls what search role filter is applied to the dashboard: the viewer's filter, or the filter of the user that shared the dashboard. For more information about data access levels, see Set the Data Access Level for a Dashboard.
When you add or edit a panel in a shared dashboard, Sumo compares your role search filter to the search filter with which the dashboard was shared. If the search filters vary, Sumo displays a message like this:
Cannot Edit Dashboard Dashboard Name
To be able to edit the dashboard, you can either:
- Make a copy of of the dashboard.
- Change the data access level. You can either set the data access level to your own data access level, or to the viewer's.
- If you set the data access level to your own, users with whom the dashboard is shared will see the same data that you can in the dashboard.
- If you set the data access level to the viewer's, users with whom the dashboard is shared will only see data to which their role filter allows access.
