ACLs are basically the Read/Write permissions granting access to a specific workspace. In Pydio Cells, the dedicated idm/acl service is in charge of storing the ACLs. This service is simply maintaining a list of ACLs that make the association between:
- A node UUID: point in the global tree where this ACL applies
- A Role UUID (optional)
- A Workspace UUID (optional)
- An Action (name/value): defines the actual ACL effect.
