Can i give a user read-only access? (Sync gateway rest api)


#1

Using the sync gateway REST API…

It seems like when a document is in a user’s channel, the user can not only read, but modify or delete the document, also. Is there a way make adoc read only?

Kind regards,
David

Hi @dbergan,

In the sync function, the call to access will give the user read access.
To give users write access, you can use requireAccess, requireUser, requireRole. If the call to a require function fails, the write operation will be rejected.
This tutorial might also help.
