Users & Permissions

The key functionality of any Portal is that any user or groups of users see and interact only with their data. In this step, we'll invite our users and set permissions to turn our Airtable app into a secure portal.

Invite Users

Click Share and add the email of a user. Then we can invite this user to the existing team or create a New Team by clicking Add a new Team. In our example, we build a portal for corporate clients, so we'll create separate teams for every company we work with.
In Jet Admin, Teams are the groups of users with the same permissions
Then send invites to the users. In our case, we invite Beans Coffe employees:

Set the Data Separation

Team Properties and User Properties are used to set the data separation in Jet Admin. For each team or user, we add a Property that uniquely identifies a company or a client, such as domain or email. In our case, we use the company name:
To be able to separate data, we need to have the property value in our data
Next, we need to filter our Portal's data by the property. Select the component you want to separate data for, proceed to filters, and set the Client field to match Client property we've created:

Set Permissions

Additionally, we want our Coffe Beans employees to interact only with the portal page we've created. For this, go to the Teams and set page-level permissions to allow access to the Tasks , Tasks-edit and the Tasks-create pages:
Now, let's check how that works: the Beans Coffee employee that we've invited can see only their company's projects:
