The Access Settings page will open. The default option is All users have access to the app and all its items. This means that any user in the system can create, view, edit and delete app items.


If you wish to restrict access and grant it only so certain users, select Restrict access to data.  

Access restriction

When the Restrict access to data option is enabled, you can select users and specify which actions they are allowed to perform with app items.


There are two ways to restrict access to app items:

  1. Restrict access to app. If you select this option, the access settings will be applied to all the items of the app.
  2. Restrict access to app items. If you select this option, access can be configured individually for each item. Also, the author of the item can be added as the object for configuring permissions.

Types of access permissions:

  • View/Read. Users can view and load the app item. Items of the Document type can be downloaded to PC.
  • Create. Users can create new app items.
  • Edit. Users can edit the existing items, change their names. In case of Document type items, add file versions.
  • Delete. Users can delete app items.

  • Full Access. All the above mentioned actions are allowed.
