This article describes how IT administrators can review and control how Data Studio is used in their organization.
Organization management through Cloud Identity integration
Data Studio integrates with Google Cloud Identity to provide organization-wide administrative capabilities. Cloud Identity and Google Workspace administrators can manage who can use Data Studio and how they can use it. If you use other identity providers, such as Active Directory, you can synchronize their users with Google Cloud Identity, so that creating, suspending, and deleting users happens in one place.
Enterprise audit logging
Enterprise audit logging provides IT administrators organization-wide visibility into Data Studio usage, similar to that available for apps like Drive and Calendar. For example, administrators can understand which users are creating Data Studio reports, and who they are sharing those reports with. administrators can also identify which reports have the most engagement, to scale successful reports across the organization. Custom alerts let you can monitor potentially risky activity like external sharing of data sources, and you can export audit logs to BigQuery and use Data Studio to drill into the details.

Organization sharing policies
Data Studio sharing policies allow you to reduce the risk of data exfiltration. You can set limits to prevent users from sharing reports outside of your organization, or make sure they don’t expose company data by disabling public link sharing.
Sharing policies offer you the flexibility to define sharing permissions that meet your business needs. You can give certain users the ability to share reports externally, while allowing other users to share only within the organization. Learn more.
Transfer ownership of Data Studio assets
When someone leaves your organization, you can transfer their Data Studio reports and data sources to another user, ensuring you don't lose access to important information. Learn more.
