Data Export Approval Flow

Project Owners can manually add the role of data exporter to control data export permissions. In Enterprise Plan, users can apply for data exporter roles by submitting a request grant issue.

As a Project Owner, you can go to the project, click Settings, find the Management members section, and manually add the role of Project Exporter.
