Roles & Permissions

Cofoundry uses a fairly simple permissions system. At the most basic level a permission represents a single action and a role represents a collection of many permitted permissions. Roles are assigned to users, or if you are not signed in then a special Anonymous role is assigned to you.

As with other roles, the Anonymous role is assigned a set of permissions which you can customize to the requirements of your application, but by default the role is assigned read-only access to most entities to allow basic website functions to work.
