Security & Access

This article offers various methods of defining security and allowing page access in an application.


  • By permission on related group
    The most flexible way to assign permissions. Under this method, any number of permissions are grouped together in a permission group, and users are assigned as members of the permission groups to accumulate these permissions.
  • By relationship to specific group
    A good way to set up permissions for applications with a small number of roles, and very strict permissions differentiation between the groups.
  • By field on user
    Often the very simplest way to set up permissions in an application. Effective when only a few permissions are needed. Downside is that permissions need to be assigned to every user that's created.
  • By field on record
    This method is often used in conjunction with another method of security assignment to control access to a certain record based on the data on the record itself. Often, this security is based on the status of the record, or the record's assignment to a user.

Page Access

  • Custom URLs
    Custom URLs offer a way of allowing direct access to a page from either within the application or outside of it.
