Reveal External Data Sources to Specific Users

Prior to Summer ‘15, users for whom Files Connect was enabled could access all of your organization’s external data sources. Now you can customize visibility for each data source.

User Permissions Needed
To set permissions: “Customize Application”
  1. From Setup, click Manage Users | Permission Sets or Manage Users | Profiles.
  2. Click a permission set or profile in which you enabled Files Connect.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • For a permission set, click External Data Source Access in the Apps section.
    • For a profile, scroll down to the Enabled External Data Source Access list.
  4. Click Edit. Then add the data sources you want users to access and authenticate with, and click Save.
