RBAC lets you customize Express roles to determine how end-users End-users, also known as Express Users, are the individuals accessing an application through Express View. In most cases, end-users are the customers using the product. interact with your module. You can also adjust permissions and grant access to unauthenticated users.

With RBAC enabled, you can also customize permissions for specific components. For example, let's say you have an accounting firm and your module includes two dashboards. The first stores client submissions, and the second is used for administrator tasks. You want your accountants to have Write access to both dashboards. Your administrator needs Write access to the task dashboard and No Access to the client dashboard. With RBAC, this customization is simple. The Module Permissions provides you with two options for RBAC:

  • Customize RBAC for this module.

  • Allow Access to Anonymous Users.

First, let's explore how to access the Module Permissions.
