A collection is a group of records. The collection can either be public or private.
Access rules for a private collection are governed by access tokens, which can be assigned either read or write access, or both. Access to a private collection is restricted to those with a valid access token, providing an added layer of security and control over the data.
The access rules for a collection apply to all of its records, which can be created, retrieved, updated, or deleted via our RESTful API.
With collections, you can organize your records and control access to them in a scalable and flexible way.
If a record is not assigned to a collection, it will be publicly accessible.
Private collections are an essential feature of myJson, providing a secure and granular way to manage access to your data. When you create a private collection, you can assign it an access token that controls who can read, write, or modify the collection's records.
With private collections, you can share your data with trusted parties while keeping it protected from unauthorized access.
Public collections are a powerful feature of our app, allowing you to share your data with a wider audience. When you create a public collection, anyone with the record ID can potentially read and edit the data it contains.
This can be a great way to share information with a broad group of users or to make your data more easily accessible to third-party applications. However, it's important to remember that because public collections are accessible to anyone, you should carefully consider the sensitivity of the data you share through this method.
We strongly recommend that you only use public collections for non-sensitive information.
