Hello 👋 , Nice to meet you all. We are in the middle of setting up GrowthBook as a POC with our app. We use Mixpanel as our data warehouse and I've had a question asked about what level of access GrowthBook has to our data if we integrate with it?
I know we link GrowthBook -> Mixpanel user ids but will GrowthBook have access to any other user level data? I might have missed something in the docs about this , so please direct me to this if it already exists.
Different data warehouses then have different ways of setting permissions, but in general you should give the growthbook service user only read only access. You can further limit it to only those tables that have the data that needs to be aggregated on.

Yeah we were using the direct integration on the POC just to be able to see how the experimentation data would come through to the GrowthBook Experiment Dashboard.
I'd imagine we will export the data to BigQuery and import it from there once we move beyond the initial POC. Then we'll use this integration. https://docs.growthbook.io/guide/bigquery

Sounds good. That is the right doc for BQ. It's pretty flexible to get table level restrictions if that is important to you. Growthbook app will only be querying aggregate statistics and shouldn't be getting any PII, but it is best security practices to only give its service account as few permissions as possible.
