Security rule to drive stream access based on app access

Hi all,

So I am trying to figure out a security rule (not even sure if it is possible I'll be honest) and thought I would post up and see any bright spark had an issue.

The rule I am trying to put is in place is, to only make a Stream readable (visible on the hub), once a user has access to any one of the underlying Apps within that Stream.

The reason for wanting this is that each App will have it's own user base and rule for it and as there will be a number of different functional area streams, so to avoid have to double up on rules it would be good to be able to have the stream work from the app read permission (the client basically doesn't want to see other Streams if they aren't part of that function).

Thoughts on a postcard

Hi Thomas,

as far as I know, there is no way to inherit the app.@CP to the stream... but you can still have a similar situation, mantaining many security rules (one for each stream)

Those security rules will have something like user.@CP = (value 1) or user.@CP = (value 2) or ...

I personally don't like much this solution, because you'll have to create many security rules
