Database Object Security (Master Data Services)

In the Master Data Services database, data is stored in multiple database tables and is visible in views. Information that you might have secured in the Master Data Manager Web application is visible to users with access to the Master Data Services database.

Specifically, employee salary information might be contained in an Employee model, or company financial information might be in an Account model. You can deny a user access to these models in the Master Data Manager user interface, but users with access to the database can view this data.

You can grant permissions to database objects to make specific data available to users. For more information on granting permissions, see GRANT Object Permissions (Transact-SQL). For more information about securing SQL server, see Securing SQL Server.

The following tasks require access to the Master Data Services database:
