Can I control access to LabStats data?

Users, by default, have the ability to view all data within LabStats. However, the ability to limit access to data is also possible. If desired, access can be granted on a group-by-group basis and can even be set to read-only. Groups are computers that are associated with each other (generally labs). If a user is the manager of only one or a few labs, access can be limited to those groups (labs). This is also useful if a user just needs read-only access to LabStats’ data for all or a few labs.

Although group-based access is controlled from within the LabStats Portal,  you can also control access with your on-premises Active Directory. Learn more about linking Active Directory to LabStats: Can I login to LabStats with my university credentials?
