Invenio module for common role based access control.

Project description

Role-based access control (RBAC) for Invenio.

  • Flask-Security

  • Flask-Login

  • Flask-Principal

  • passlib


  • Role-based access control with object level permissions.

  • CLI and administration interface for allowing/denying actions to users, roles or system roles.

  • Support for superuser privileges.
