User Data Access

Managing data consumers and their associated data access tokens

Access to data within a BitBroker instance is always permitted within the context of a consumer and a policy. The connection between these two system concepts is called an access.

In practice, these are manifested as authorization tokens which authorize the consumer’s calls to the Consumer API. Such accesses can only be created, managed and rescinded by coordinator users.

Since an access is in the context of a policy, it restricts its holder to the designated data segment and access control.
