What user role setting allows users to "Add Data"?

Ultra Champion

Usually we set our users in authorize.conf as -

[role_<name>_user]
importRoles = user

What needs to be added for them so they can use the Add Data feature? They only see the KNOWLEDGE section of Settings. Even the power role doesn't see it.

Hi @ddrillic, This documentation explains all of the user roles and capabilities and has a page on editing roles with authorize.conf.
