Is it possible to edit permissions in the Studio so that only one user gets access to BDM's API?



Is it possible to edit permissions in the Studio in order that only one user gets access to BDM's API?

The idea here is to limit access to the API "../API/bdm/businessData" to only one user.

If the answer is yes, what are the steps to follow in order to achieve this.

Studio used:

  • Bonita-Subscription-7.9.3

Thanks a lot,

This one is the BEST answer!

When you say user you talk about a Bonita user on the platform (eg: walter.bates) or a developer using the studio ?

If it is the first case then yes, you can customize permissions using setup pull/push (like on a prod env) but you have to properly configure the to point to the proper h2 db files. There is no Studio specific features to do this, so just follow the doc about permissions. Keep in mind that the Studio has database clean capabilities that will erase the configuration when triggered.

Depending on the use case, using the BDM access control can be a good solution.

For the second case, no, there is no user management in the studio.

Thanks!! Indeed, I meant a Bonita user on the platform (eg: walter.bates).

The part about permissions wasn't clear in the doc for this use-case (at least to me). Should I use dynamic permissions? Could you please share more information about how it could be done?

Thanks a lot!!

You can use either the static way.

there is a bdm_visualization permission that handle access to BDM resources (see in tenant_portal configuration).

You can bind those resources to a custom permission in

# BDM resources

Then declare your custom permission in


In the above example only walter.bates will have access to BDM resources, it is possible to fine tune using a custom profile instead of a single user like this:
