Resource permissions

All admins will now be able to assign two different permission levels for any given resource: (1) "use," which allows an editor to write queries with that resource and (2) "edit," which additionally allows an editor to modify the resource's configuration.

Previously, admins had minimal control over permissions to resources — any resource permission granted at a group level would allow members of that group to modify the configuration of the resource. We know configuration for some resources can be sensitive and complex to change, so we've shipped these new permission levels to give admins more control over their user's access.

Additionally, to allow editors to create new resources or delete existing ones, admins can assign a group to have “universal access” at the “edit” level. As always, a “viewer” of an app (e.g. no edit permissions) can still view and use an app that leverages a resource for which they do not have explicit permissions granted.

These new resource permissions are available to all admins across Pro+ plans. Drop us a note at support@retool.com to let us know how they're working for you!

  • Removed inconsistent right panel behavior in favor of the pop out code editor
  • Updated the Divider component to support an optional text label
