This page outlines security and access information for the data warehouse, which can be accessed via report tools Cognos and Tableau, as well as information on accessing Collibra. For information on system-specific security, contact the security administrator for that system.
Access to data in the data warehouse is managed by data stewards through the Office of Data Governance. Data stewards are trained members of the WashU business community who have expert knowledge of data within their domain, such as human resources, financial, or academic data. Individuals are granted access to the warehouse based on their job functions. Users can request access to additional data by following the procedures outlined below.
