Role-Based Access Management

The Kodex API provides role-based access controls for all objects. An API user belongs to one or more organizations and has one or more roles in those organizations. An API object, for example a project, stream or data source either belongs to, or is its own role object. Role objects map specific object roles (that e.g. grant writing or reading rights to an object) to organization roles. Hence, users can access and work with objects based on their assigned organization roles.
