Entity and Attribute Security

Entity and Attribute Security

  

Hi, new to OS can I centrally define access rights to my data model. So limit access to only the records I own or read/write rights for a specific role when I'm modelling the Entities and Associations?

Solution

Hello Nick,

On your data model eSpace, wrap entities' actions in a public action that is only accessed based on a role check.

Could I answer your question?

Regards,

Hi Nick,

This discussion comes up every once in a while here on the forum. The short answer is no, you cannot do that  "out of the box", you'll have to program that. You could for example store a role or user together with the data to indicate access permissions, and filter on that when retrieving data. As for specific attributes, in the logic on your screen you could show or hide certain data based on roles.
