Permissions

Introduction

Permissions are a new way of managing the way that administrators and developers can set up domain-wide and per-user policies. This feature has been introduced in v4.3 as an improvement to the existing capabilities approach, which has some drawbacks. The most important benefit of permissions versus capabilities is the fact that permissions are available via the REST API in a more flexible way that capabilities, which are tied to the database.

The currently available permissions are:
