Security: Row Level Locking
« on: August 21, 2017, 06:51:55 pm »
I have a question about security in EA.
I have been reading about the addition of row level locking for EA. But I haven't really seen it. Neither in the released product nor in commitments to a future release. Can anyone shed some light on this???

It's in the Pro Cloud Server. It's listed under the "new features coming soon" section of the sales blurb, but the installation help page says it's in place. I haven't tested it myself though.

My theories are always correct, just apply them to the right reality.

You can also read this:

It is in a bit of a raw state; I think the author was still doing some tweaks to it. Just ignore the incomplete sentence.

Thanks, Roy,

Do I understand correctly that this is a "vertical" visibility level mechanism?  From the documentation, a user at level M can see anything defined at level <M.  There is NO concept of "horizontal" visibility.  Say we have two branches both at Level M; B1 and B2.  We can't restrict Users from (for example) seeing stuff in B1 but not seeing stuff in B2.

Yes, that's how I read it too. They are cumulative levels, not individual privileges (like the user security model).

Disclaimer: I don't know anything.

I'll say. That third paragraph in particular reads like it's lifted straight from an internal pitch memo. :)
