Permissions: Row-Level (Basic)

Permissions: Row-Level Permissions (Basic)

Row-level permissions can be set based on a user's role or any session variables.

In this example, we'll be creating a permission structure where user's will only be able to view their sent chats, or chats where they are the recipient of.

Note: To test this user role, try entering a x-hasura-user-id entry when using your GraphiQL editor in the API tab.
