User Access Management

TigerGraph’s user access management features are based on the Role-based Access Control model, on top of which there are additional features that give users finer-grain data access control. Some key features include:

Users and Credentials

A TigerGraph user is a database-level security principal on the TigerGraph platform. When user authentication is enabled, only clients who can provide credentials that identify themselves as a user can interact with the TigerGraph database.

The TigerGraph platform offers two options for credentials:

  1. A username-password pair

  2. A token - a unique 32-character string used for REST++ requests, with an expiration date.
