SGNL connects to a range of Systems of Record and ingests valuable business context into the SGNL Graph. Users can then build policies to make access decisions based on data in the SGNL Graph. In any organization, there will be times when an Administrator, Support User, or Audit/Compliance Specialist needs to explore and understand the ingested data and its relationships, and debug cases when a policy might not be behaving as expected.
