Unable to use DB Connection and Discovery connection available to everyone

The DB connection was create by platform admin team. When trying to use the connection via Data Discovery job the application is asking for UserName and Password. The stewards would not have passwords available with them. The application should let them use the connection.

 Issue 2: Once a connection is added to Discovery than its available to anyone having discovery permission. A unauthorized person can go ahead and use a connection to discover assets. Once discovery job completes the User can see sample data from the database which he/she should not be allowed.

Expected Result for Issue 2: User should only see his/her connection in Data Discovery.

    I believe this is working correctly now. Data Discovery can be done with a global connection created by others, but browsing actual data values directly in the catalog requires knowing the connection information. Please close this ticket. Thanks.
