Permissions

Permissions can be used to restrict access for specific features, so only authorized users can access them. In principle, a User needs a connection to a Permission to be able to access functionalities that require that Permission.

Permissions are defined as nodes with an IA_Permission label, and can have the following properties:

Key Description Value
error Error message to display when access is denied. string
expression Javascript expression to evaluate whether the user should have access. * Javascript string
query Query to execute against the application store to determine whether the user should have access. * Query language should match the specified store. Query string
store The name of the store on which to execute the specified query. Defaults to application. string
name The name of the Permission. If set to a built-in Permission name (see below), it will be used to determine access the specified Graphileon core functionality. string

* Queries should return only one row with an allow (boolean) column, that determines the user's access. Expressions can either return a boolean directly, or an array with a single object containing an allow property (similar structure to the query result).

* Both queries and expressions can use parameters, prefixed with $ (e.g. $myParam === 123). Parameter values are filled in by REQUIRE relations to the Permission, similar to how Triggers fill in parameter values for Functions.

Built-in permission names

The following permission names are used to control access to Graphileon core functionalities:
