We need an API for changing the authorization (permissions) on a model object.

This was neglected in #1253 because of various changes to authz were looming. But six months later it still hasn't been done.

Suggest this is just moving _add_user_object_role from ckan/lib/base.py to the logic layer, but no doubt it will be more complicated.

Estimate: 3 days

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

Done: [feature-1688-authz-api 8d7b42c]

Work excludes changing roles on the System object, so you can't make people sysadmins. This could be a future ticket.

Docs added to apiv3.rst and examples here: http://wiki.ckan.org/Using_the_API

Took: 3.5 days
