📜 Prerequisites for Sisense integration
Before you get started, you'll need some information to help establish a connection between Atlan and your Sisense account.
🔑 Sisense user permissions
To set up user permissions, add a user with the role set as "Admin". (Make sure you perform this as "Admin".)(Atlan needs Admin access because we fetch dashboard images for preview.) Visit "Managing Dashboard Users" for more information.
🔑 Sisense API key generation
To get a token from Sisense, navigate to the API Reference page. Make a POST request to /authentication/login with the credentials obtained in the last step.
