Permissions

Permissions for data are fairly straightforward. They correspond to regular Create, Read, Update, Delete operations on a table. As with the rest of the platform, the permissions themselves are applied to roles, and the role is applied to the user.

Managing permissions

Permissions are managed through the settings modal on the Collection. Click the gear icon to open the settings modal.

Add Permissions to Collection

Select the Security Tab on the modal.

The Security tab displays a list of the roles that are associated with the Collection, and what actions each role is allowed. By default, roles are not allowed to perform any actions on a Collection.

To associate a new role, click “+ Role” above the list of roles.

Begin typing to select the label of an existing role. As an example, we have typed Administrator and selected it from the list of options.

Allow the selected role to Create, Read, Update and Delete items from the Collection by checking the appropriate checkboxes.
