Hi flamber !

Thank for your feedback ! I read the article that you sent. It about data row security, so that user login just get your data in table (I will add field user_id in table).

But it could be in enterprise version right ? so I need buy license enterprise to use “data sandboxies” right ? So we have anyways to do this without this :frowning:

Thank you !

Yes, the enterprise edition has this feature - among a few other features. You’ll need a license.
You can get quite far with Embedding, but you have to code most of the logic yourself.
