Managing user permissions for complex applications is a significant challenge, especially when multiple users with different roles need access to specific data. This challenge becomes more complex as applications grow and roles change.
To address this, a granular project management approach was implemented in a Metrics Tool application. The Metrics Tool serves as a platform for IT project management, providing insights into project performance for informed decision-making.
User permissions management is one of the biggest challenges for complex applications. With multiple users working on different aspects, it is important to ensure that each user has the appropriate level of access to the data they need to do their job. Access control becomes an even bigger issue when the roles keep on changing as the application grows, especially in large organizations with complex hierarchies and multiple user roles.
Here's how we set up granular project management in a Metrics Tool application.

The tool provides insights and metrics on project progress and other critical parameters, enabling businesses to make data-driven decisions.</p></span>
This is where the CASL library comes into play.
With the CASL library, administrators can define granular permissions for different user roles, ensuring that users only have access to the features and data they need to perform their tasks. For example, project managers may have access to all project metrics, while team members may only be able to view metrics related to their specific projects.
By using the CASL library in the Metrics Tool project, organizations can ensure that their data is secure and that users have access to the right information, resulting in better decision-making and improved project outcomes.
