Is Access Control List (ACL) or Role Based Access Control (RBAC) ?

NocoDB not only auto generates access control list for all the tables but also provides GUI to manage these permissions for each category of users and models. Again, these ACL are done in really modular way such that each ACL file is associated with its corresponding router and middleware file.

ACL/RBAC enables developer to manage fine grained access to underlying models to various category of users.

Swagger is the most adapted open source API documentation. Swagger's interactive live documentation not only helps developer to understand APIs but also to invoke the APIs.
