Integrate the group membership on the app development

Post by Phil Massyn » 2018-01-28 12:19

The group membership is quite a nice way of managing the permissions. I really like it. What I don't like, is that while I develop the app, it requires me to log onto the generated app and then create the groups and set the permissions.

A really nice feature would be to allow the permissions be set within AppGini, so that when the database is created, it can pre-populate the permission tables (don't take it out of the web app - leave that there - but allow the group permissions to be set at development time as well).

For example, when you edit the table in AppGini, put an additional tab, where you can specify the owner, group, and everyone permissions for that table only, against the group name you specify. When AppGini generates the database generation code, it can include a couple of insert statements and pre-populate the membership tables.

That will save time in setting up a dev environment, and then having to copy the tables over to a production system. Let's try to keep it all in the same application.
