I'm pleased to announce the release of two fantastic new features - Data Source Permissions and Data Source Deletion which are now live on NWC. Not only can users now delete data sources, but they now have the ability to control which users can edit a data source and who can consume it to bind data to the data lookup control.

 

When saving a data source, a permissions dialogue will appear displaying the existing permissions along with edit access, if that user is also the connection owner. Details on the permissions each of the key roles have been outlined below:

 

Connection Owners (owners of the connection used in a data source):

  • The only users that can “Share” the data source with other users by defining who are data source editors and users
  • Will have edit access to the data source and will be able to change the configuration
  • Will be able to delete the data source
  • Can use the data source in forms to bind to a Data Lookup Control

  • Will be able to delete the data source
  • Can use the data source in forms to bind to a Data Lookup Control

Data Source Users:

  • Can use the data source in forms to bind to a Data Lookup Control

 

All existing Data Sources have been migrated to have the creator of the Data Source assigned an Editor and "Everyone" as Users by default.

To delete a data source, or access the permissions details again, use the context menu in the Data Source page in the dashboard
