Authorization for the connection

In Sources and Targets, you can configure who is allowed to read and write messages.

A connection needs at least 1 and may have multiple authorization subjects. The user interface will support you to edit 1 to 9 entries.

The subjects you define here will control which Things are able to publish or receive messages through this connection.

  • If an authorization subject has READ permission for one Thing, messages from the Thing will be sent through the connection.

  • If an authorization subject has WRITE permission for one Thing, messages from the connection will be forwarded to the Thing.

To distinguish the connection specific authorization subjects from others, the effective authorization subject will be “integration:the-solution-ID-of-this-instance:each-subject-ID”.

The following figure summarizes the concepts described in this section.

Both sections Sources and Targets support placeholder which you can use.
