Access Rules

Access in an app is governed by a Policy file located within the app. This file is based on the XACML standard. We have developed a tool to make it easier to add and edit access rules.

Learn more about how to set this up here. We have also written a guide for authorization rules that may be useful to review before getting started.

Tools for Access Rules

Tools for editing access rules are located under “Settings.” Here, you can set the required security level for login, and you can establish rules for who should have access.

Access Rules

Each rule must define:

  • WHAT the rule should apply to (which resource or sub-resource). For an app, this could be the entire app, or it can be narrowed down to only parts of the app (e.g., only a selected step in the process).
  • WHICH permissions should be granted? For example, “Read,” “Write,” “Instantiate,” etc. This is selected from a list of available permissions.
  • WHO should this rule apply to? Here, you can choose from a list of Altinn roles or select your own organization.
