8 - Cloud Apps



We are looking to add some security around when someone can download a report to a CSV file.

Specifically, we are looking for:

  1. Can we put a warning when someone tries to download data.  i.e. WARNING! Downloading data is.......
  2. Can we limit download per report
  3. Can we limit download by group
  4. We need to be able to audit who downloaded what

Any help or guidance anyone can provide is appreciated.

Hi @Appfire_Al 

As a HIPAA compliant development partner, our products help many Sisense clients in advanced auditing and security requirements.

We have a premium plugin called Custom Export Options which allows a designer to apply certain limitations as to which export options are made available per widget or dashboard. Security messages can be applied, as well as limiting these options to certain user groups. Reports can then be generated on each groups exporting activity.

In addition, a viewer can also share their insights and exports to slack, by PNG or CSV. These slack exports can also be scheduled!

The viewer can even export their widgets and dashboards to Powerpoint for re-usable presentations based on their dashboards.

In short, we have a wide range of exporting options with auditing and security features in place,

Please feel free to reach out to discuss,

As the only HIPPA compliant partner of Sisense (to this day), we already helped several clients to comply with their auditing and security requirements. 

For example, one of the recent features for our Export Button plugin is the ability to generate detailed reports about which user exported what from your dashboards and it also allows you some limitation option on the number of rows that are getting exported and etc'

Another one that would be relevant for your use case is our Control Export Options plugin which is similar to QBQs Custom Export Options but more mature with features and ease of use. 

To make a long stroy short, by using both plugin you have a full cover for all the 4 requirements that you have raised out of the box. 

Free trial is available to all our plugins and you are welcome to reach out and schedule a live demo (: 

Looking forward,
