Understanding access roles

We are working on introducing role based access control to the Outerbase experience, but until that is available please familiarize yourself with how access currently works.

Access management

Understanding how to manage access roles is a crucial aspect of database security and functionality. When you connect a database to Outerbase, the base directly inherets the level of access from the connection details you provide (the user and password you enter while connecting).

Choose your access level wisely based on your needs.


If you prefer to limit Outerbase's capabilities to viewing data without making changes, you can set up a read-only connection. This ensures that no accidental alterations or deletions occur while using the platform.


For those looking to take full advantage of all Outerbase features—including the ability to create, read, update, and delete (CRUD) table entries—a read and write access level is required. This enables you to fully interact with your data within Outerbase.

Organize using workspaces

Keep in mind that bases are available to all workspace members, all with the same level of access (currently). If it makes sense for your team, you may wish to organize your database connections into separate workspaces and control who has access that way.
