License Mapping

License type defines the features and functionality available when using Whaly. It's important to successfully deploy your data project to assign the right licenses to the right stakeholders.

Whaly offers 3 main licenses:

  1. Builder: Users who connect data sources, create models and define explorations

  2. Editor: Users who create dashboards and questions

  3. Viewer: Users who consume already existing dashboards, questions and exploration. However, everything is read-only for those.
