The OrigoDB engine supports role bases authorization for commands and queries based on their type. By default, every user has full access. To activate authorization, register a custom IAuthorizer<Type> with the EngineConfiguration before starting the engine. The identity is taken from the current threads IPrincipal, normally the account which the process is running as.

Here’s an example:

   var config = EngineConfiguration.Create();

   // create an authorizer with a default of denied
   var myAuthorizer = new TypeBasedPermissionSet();

   //add rules for each command/query type, passing an `IEnumerable<string>` with user or role names

   //inject a factory lambda that returns the authorizer
   config.SetAuthorizer(cfg => myAuthorizer);

   //Engine picks up and uses the injected authorizer
