Ability to specify permission grants in model

Post by tom.puckett » Fri 24 Jun 2016 13:29

My application is for PostgreSQL database but I think this applies to all server types.

Can there be a way to grant access permissions to an entity as part of the model? I have created a database and deployed my schema, but each table is owned by the login role that I used in my connection string for the deployment. I would like to have an option to specify desired access rights to a group role, since the best practice would be to grant access rights to a group, not a login.

A similar question relates to specifying the owner of the table when deploying it. Can I control the table owner when deploying the schema from Entity Developer to the database?

Maybe if there was a way to execute some DDL script as part of the model deployment process it would help.

The PostgreSQL roles are currently not supported by Entity Developer (and Entity Framework itself). Please submit your suggestion at https://devart.uservoice.com/forums/386 ... -developer.
