Security rule to create REST connection

We want to create a security rule that allows developers to only create REST connections. We have disabled the standard dataconnection rules and applied the one below.
When a developer tries to create a new dataconnection, they cannot create any type of connections.

Resource filter: DataConnection_*
Actions: Create
Conditions: ((user.name="Andersson Thomas tp" and resource.type="QvRestConnector.exe"))
Context: Both in hub and QMC


If we change the resource.type to OLEDB, then the rule works.
Does anyone know how we can set up a security rule that only allows the developers to create REST connections?

According to the help, accepted values are;

 

  • OLEDB
  • ODBC
  • Folder
  • Internet
  • Custom (for all custom connectors)

So the QvRestConnector will not work.
