Project Level Security Needed

We are using Watson Discovery v2.1.2 in CP4D and we see that a user added under “Manage users” for a WD instance with role “Admin” or “User” is able to not only access all project created by other users, but is also able to delete them. Our security team may not allow this due to the security risks involved.

    This is for watson discovery in IBM Cloud and in CP4D:

    We have 2 clients that want a "multi-business unit" collection of AI Assistants. Each assistant needs its own project so that the data is unique to that business unit. While we can stand up multiple wx.assistants, when it comes to w.discovery, the client is limited to allow a wx.disc admin ability to view/manage all data across multiple projects. This is concerning to them. The current alternative is to stand up multiple w.disc, but at $5000/month for the instance, the client is not deciding to purchase yet. They want to stand up w.disc, add multiple projects, and then perform role-based access so projects can be managed by individuals where they can only see the projects they are authorized to.

    The Discovery product team plans to deliver role/permissions at instance level and not at the project level as a means of compromising overall capability vs the level of effort time to deliver project level security
