Embarcadero Connect provides two different user experiences: social and non-social. Which experience you enjoy depends on the user connection that a super user assigns you to connect to Embarcadero Connect.

The interface of Embarcadero Connect is different for each type of user, and the available features change as well. For example, special search pages are only available for social users.

The following sections provide an overview of the differences between each type of user. In the User Guide you can find separated sections for social and non-social users that might help you understand the differences as well.

Social Users

Social users have access to several features and additional data of the ER/Studio Repository database that non-social users cannot access, including:

  • ER Object activity:
    • Metadata changes (additions, deletions, modifications).
    • Changes to domains and terms pages.
    • Domain and term page wiki edits.
  • Activity of other Embarcadero Connect users:
    • User comments in metadata, terms, and domain pages.
    • New friends added to pages.
    • Reports (new, changed, deleted reports).
    • Shared searches (additions, deletions, modifications).

You can restrict social users from accessing specific diagrams.

Non-Social Users

Non-social users can use comments and labels in addition to the basic features that social and non-social users have in common.
