IAM policies are no longer available for individual entries, but still are available for tag templates and entry groups. With this change, users will not be able to set ACLs for individual entries such as filesets, only for tag templates and entry groups. Each fileset belongs to an entry group and an entry group can contain multiple filesets or entries.
This change is relevant to users who have created filesets in Data Catalog. Data Catalog users who do not have filesets are not impacted by this change.
