    We have a complex application with a number of collaborating Plomino databases.
    Users of the main database need certain rights on the collaborating databases.
    Adding member records for them on those databases is cumbersome.
    Are there any recommended best practices for dealing with this situation? Would it be workable and a good idea to make a collaborating database check the main database for access rights, in addition to locally defined rights?

    Hello,

    At the moment, there is no hook in the Plomino security, so each database uses only its own security settings.
    It could be a good idea indeed, but it would have to be done very carefully.

    My practical approach for now would be to synchronise automatically the ACL settings of the different databases (using the XML import/export for instance).
