Ganister Can… manage groups of users

Fifth episode of our "Ganister can…" video series. Let's dive into an administrative feature of Ganister. One of the key aspects of knowledge is the property of the knowledge and managing who can access what in your system. The more you collaborate with external entities the more you will need to identify what needs to be kept from others or shared with partners. With conventional systems and conventional databases we see a lot of tricks to allow complex access management systems which end up complexifying or slowing down performances. Ganister and its graph database makes it very easy to understand and therefore to audit. Whether it is a default access or a custom graph access it is always possible to read an access by querying the graph.

Graph access types

  • default access: This is the conventional approach for which we demonstrate in the video how we configure it and how permissions are inherited from group structure.
  • custom graph access: This will be demonstrated in a future video were you can define specific custom path in the graph which grant specific access levels.

Enjoy the video
