Applying specific permissions to a user.
MattFox last edited by MattFox
I've gone through the documentation site as well as the Swagger API and I cannot seem to work out what other permissions I have available for me to use. I want to be able to generate JSON objects to save in the database on the fly by individual users but they do not have the create jsonData permission. What is it? Better yet, can we have a full list of the system permissions to allow more customised access rather than page based permissions, datapoint permissions, and superadmin if i want to do anything else?

@MattFox the permissions system is quite clunky for sure. An overhaul is on our roadmap.

The permissions are arbitrary strings, you can give the user any permission you want. In fact the "permissions" field of a user would be more correctly described as "roles" or "groups".

I'm not exactly following your intention here. A user either has permission to create JSON data or they don't. You can set this up under "Administration", "System settings", "Permissions". The setting is labelled "Permission to create a JSON data entry".

Thanks Jared, found what you mean. I don't recall seeing that in the Documentation part of the site, and it never occurred to me that permissions were also in amongst system settings. Would prefer if they were all in one place personally. But that's just my opinion.
