In the past, administrators could manage what type of relationships or nodes the end users could have access to. As an example, customer service reps could either see the “transaction” relationships or not. Today, administrators can manage access rights at the property level to more precisely secure their most sensitive information.
You can read more on how to setup property-key access rights in the documentation.
We have also modified the possible access rights levels. Four options are now available:
- None (no access).
- Read (ability to view).
- Edit (ability to edit existing nodes and edges).
- Create and delete (ability to create and delete nodes and edges).
The “edit” option replaces the “write” option that already allowed for editing but also allowed for creating new nodes or relationships (but not delete them). To better match our clients’ expectations the ability to create has been regrouped with the ability to delete in the “create and delete” option.
As a consequence, if you have groups that had the “write” permission but not the “delete” permission, users from those groups are not authorized to create nodes anymore. If you need them to be able to create new entities, you need to upgrade their group access rights to “create and delete.”
