Build Role-Based Access Control

When managing access to resources within an application, it can be useful to group permissions into roles, and assign these roles to users. This is known as Role-Based Access Control (RBAC). The Oso Roles feature provides a configuration-based approach to adding role-based access control to your application.

The roles feature includes:

  • Role configuration - Declarative configuration for roles and permissions for each resource. The roles configuration supports multi-tenancy, resource-specific roles, and hierarchical roles. Groups and custom roles are coming soon.
  • Enforcement - Enforce authorization consistently throughout your application routing and data access layers.
  • Last-mile customizations - Extend authorization logic for each resource by writing custom policies using Polar, Oso’s declarative policy language.
