Add separate permissions for metadata enrichment areas in an import project

WKC projects in 4.5.+ use metadata import areas and metadata enrichment areas. Access control is only available at the full project level. In some instances, individual groups of tables need to be enriched by one set of SMEs and other table groups need to be enriched by another set of SMEs. We need a way to add admin, editor, and viewer permissions for the different MDE areas inside a project. This would be similar to the different permission levels in a category and sub-categories. This prevents the need to separate the MDEs by project and reduces complexity.

    Hi Michael,

    our recommendation is to use separate projects for different group of users, so user management on project level can be leveraged.

    Best regards,
