User permissions for an Access 2013 web app
Posted on 2014-10-01
Built an Access web app. All is well, with a lot of help. Now that we're ready to go live, need to get a handle on permissions to the database. The major permission settings are obvious, in the desktop access ability to close write connections, for example.
But what about to the app. views, themselves?
Using the notion of managing SharePoint document libraries for example, it is possible to grant unique permissions at the library level. A user not having permissions to a library, simply doesn't get to see the library, even in search results.
What is possible then for the access web app.? Obviously the best case would be to set unique user permission to manage privilege to the app. When a user doesn't have privilege, they can not even see the app. views, just as in a SharePoint library. What is possible?
