Actions permissions


As with the other fields in the GraphQL schema, users need to be given access to an action.

Set action permissions

Head to the Actions -> [action-name] -> Permissions tab in the console.

Console action permission

Hit Save to give the role permission to access the action.

Go to metadata/actions.yaml in the Hasura project directory.

Update the definition of the insertAuthor action as:

  - actions
    - name: insertAuthor
        kind: synchronous
        handler: '{{ACTIONS_BASE_URL}}/insertAuthor'
      - role: user
      - role: publisher

Save the changes and run hasura metadata apply to set the permissions.

Action permissions can be set by using the create_action_permission metadata API:

POST /v1/metadata HTTP/1.1
Content-Type: application/json
X-Hasura-Role: admin

  "type": "create_action_permission",
  "args": {
    "action": "insertAuthor",
    "role": "user"
