The Settings dropdown to the top-right of the 5X Managed Apache Superset™ page header acts as the control centre to manage your 5X Managed Apache Superset™ workspace. This page explains how users can explore security, and database connections and customize their workspace for analytics.

Navigate to 5X Managed Apache Superset™ from 5X Operate and click the Settings dropdown on the right corner of the header.


This section explains how to manage action logs and configure row-level security for your workspace.

Action log

The Action Logs tab provides a detailed record of activity on your 5X Managed Apache Superset™ account. Logs are displayed by user, action, and date/time (dttm). You can filter these logs using various criteria, including:

  • User: Specify which user's actions you want to view.

  • Date/Time (dttm): Filter logs by specific date and time ranges.

  • Action: Select particular actions to focus on.

  • Slice ID: Filter logs by specific slice identifiers.

  • Dashboard ID: View logs related to specific dashboards.

  • JSON: Search logs containing specific JSON data.

  • Duration (ms): Filter logs based on the duration of actions in milliseconds.

  • Referrer: Filter logs by the referrer information.

Row-level security

Row Level Security uses filters assigned to a particular table and a set of roles. Configuring the row level security includes,

  • Rule name (unique),

  • Select dataset,

  • Regular and base filter types: Regular filters add where clauses to queries if a user belongs to a role referenced in the filter. Base filters apply filters to all queries except the roles defined in the filter, and can be used to define what users can see if no RLS filters within a filter group apply to them.

  • Group key: Filters within the same group key are combined using an OR operation. Filters from different group keys are combined using an AND operation. If a filter's group key is undefined, it is treated as belonging to a unique group.

  • Clause: This condition will be added to the WHERE clause. For example, to return rows for a specific client, you might use a filter with the condition `client_id = 9`. To ensure no rows are displayed unless a user belongs to a specific RLS (Row-Level Security) role, you can create a base filter with the condition `1 = 0` (always false).

You can check the current row level security from the overview, and sort and filter to customize the view. Click +Rule to create a new rule.


5X Managed Apache Superset™ pairs with your existing warehouse integrated into your 5X workspace to store data. Before you can add, query and visualize data, you must add the database connection and configure its credentials. Select the Database connections in the Data category of the Settings dropdown.

Database connections

The Databases page lists the database connections currently configured and actions to maintain them.

Upload file to database

You can upload schema to your existing databases in .CSV, .xlxs and columnar file formats.

You must enable Allow file uploads to the database in any database's settings.

Add Database

  1. Click +Database on the top-right of the header.

Actions to manage connections

You can hover over the database connection to edit, delete and export it in the Actions column. You can configure advanced settings to customize database interaction.


This section lets you configure metrics like tags for analysis, custom styling using CSS templates and add context to their visualizations by overlaying additional information on charts using an annotation layer.

CSS templates

You can customize the styling of your d workspace by embedding the CSS template code. The CSS templates page lists the current templates active on your Superset workspace. Select +CSS Template on the top-right of the header to embed the CSS code. Bulk select when you want to delete multiple templates on the workspace.

Add the template name, embed the CSS code, and click Add. Example: We are applying a CSS template that defines styles for the navigation bar and chart headers, along with a color palette array.

You can hover over the existing template to update it by clicking on Edit and deleting it from the Delete icon.


Tags help organize and categorize dashboards, charts, and datasets to enhance navigation and management by allowing users. Tags lets you:

  • Quickly search and filter items using tags.

  • Create and apply custom tags to fit specific needs.

  • Facilitate team collaboration to share resources.

Navigate to Tags from Settings on your 5X Managed Apache Superset™ workspace. You can search and filter the current tags listed in rows by the users and name. You can hover over the existing template to update it by clicking on Edit and deleting it from the Delete icon. Bulk Select from the top-right of the header to delete multiple tags.

Select +Tag on the top right of the header to create a tag and configure its properties. You can apply the tag to multiple dashboards, charts and saved queries.

Annotation layers

The annotation layer lets you overlay contextual information on charts. You can use text, markers, lines and shaded regions to highlight significant events and additional information to interpret the data rendered in Charts. This feature enhances the interpretability of your data by providing clear visual cues and context.

Navigate to Annotation Layers in Manage to create and manage annotation layers. Click +Annotation Layer to add annotation layer, and configure its name and description.

Once added, apply it to your chart. You can hover over the existing annotation layers to update them using Edit and delete from Delete.
