Understanding Access Roles

Managing access roles is a crucial aspect of database security and functionality. In Outerbase, the level of access granted is directly inherited from the connection details you provide.

Access Management

Choose your access level wisely based on your needs. A read-only connection provides a secure, view-only environment, while read and write access unlocks Outerbase's full range of capabilities.


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.
