Set user permissions

We can set user permissions on remote databases.


Procedure

Set user permissions on the remote store.

BEFORE (with IMFData/CloudantToolkit):

// Get reference to data manager IMFDataManager *manager = [IMFDataManager sharedInstance]; // Set permissions for current user on a store [manager setCurrentUserPermissions: DB_ACCESS_GROUP_MEMBERS forStoreName: @"automobiledb" completionHander:^(BOOL success, NSError *error) { if(error){ // Handle error }else{ // setting permissions was successful } }];

// Get reference to data manager let manager = IMFDataManager.sharedInstance() // Set permissions for current user on a store manager.setCurrentUserPermissions(DB_ACCESS_GROUP_MEMBERS, forStoreName: "automobiledb") { (success:Bool, error:NSError!) -> Void in if nil != error { // Handle error } else { // setting permissions was successful } } Android

Task<Boolean> permissionsTask = manager.setCurrentUserPermissions(DataManager.DB_ACCESS_GROUP_MEMBERS, "automobiledb"); permissionsTask.continueWith(new Continuation<Boolean, Object>() { @Override public Object then(Task<Boolean> task) throws Exception { if(task.isFaulted()){ // Handle error }else{ // setting permissions was successful } return null; } });

AFTER (with Cloudant® Sync): There is no longer a way to set user permissions from the mobile device. You must set permissions with the Cloudant dashboard or server-side code. AndroidFor a sample of how to integrate Mobile Client Access OAuth tokens with Cloudant Security, see the Bluelist sample.
