Interactive Prompts

The tool will prompt you for the necessary information and then modify the Model definition JSON file accordingly.

The generator prompts for:

  • Name of the model to which you want to apply access control or all models.
  • Scope of access control: All methods and properties or a specific method.
  • If you choose a specific method, the method’s name.
  • Access type: read, write, execute, or all.
  • Role: all users, any unauthenticated user, any authenticated user, the object owner.
  • Permission to apply: explicitly grant access or explicitly deny access.
