Row-level Security

Row-level security makes it possible to limit access to the data for certain users by setting up rules which make only certain database rows available for them. For instance, if compounds in a database are assigned to different projects, row-level security can be used to allow people to see only those compounds which belong to projects in which they participate.

Row-level security restrictions have to be set within the database. You can learn more about this topic in the relevant part of the Instant JChem Administrator Guide.

Row-level security rules can be defined in every popular database types. You can find complete tutorials for implementing a security policy, e.g., in an Oracle or in a MySQL database.
