Adding a User in Data Warehouse

To add a user, you have to be an administrator for the Data Warehouse instance.

You can only add users with existing GoodData platform accounts to the Data Warehouse instance.

Users are added silently. No email is delivered to the user.


  1. Get a list of users to add. For each user, acquire either the user profile URI or the GoodData platform account identifier.

  2. Determine the role to apply to the user. See Data Warehouse User Roles.

  3. Acquire the instance identifier for the Data Warehouse instance to which you want to add the user. See Prepare the JDBC Connection String.

  4. Access the following gray page:\[DW_ID\]/users

    The list of users and their roles is displayed.

  5. From the Role drop-down, select the Data Warehouse user role to assign to the user. See Data Warehouse User Roles

  6. Enter one of the following (do not enter both):

    • The user’s profile URI

    • The user’s GoodData platform identifier

  7. Click Add user to the storage. The task is queued for execution in the platform. You can use the link in the gray page to query the status of this task. Reload the page until you see the following: 

     The user has been added to the instance.

    If the following error message appears, refresh the page opened to the GoodData Portal:

    document requested. Either you supplied the wrong credentials (e.g., bad
    password), or your browser doesn't understand how to supply the 
    credentials required. Please see Authenticating to the GoodData API for
