Organizations may restrict employee access to database records via Active Directory. Discovery Search supports permissioned searching of content sources, including SQL databases. The Database mappings feature allows for the configuration of permissioned content sources. When configured, search results are restricted to records that an employee has permission to view.
Microsoft® SQL Server versions 2012 to 2022 are supported with this feature.
