Hi @ruphus - There are two ways to do this:
- All records can be updated via the tables view in Boundless itself
- If this user can only update some records and you don’t want them to be able to update the site itself you can make a page in Boundless (e.g. /admin-dashboard) require login and add an additional restriction:
You can add a single option select field to the users table of role, or a boolean field of Admin and then set the restriction accordingly.
Any forms you place on these pages with restrictions will also be restricted thus you can make a form that only the admin user will be able to update.
With regards to the source of a dropdown. The short version is you add a from field for a select - pick an association and then select the label to use (e.g. name). You could then add a form for this associated table behind a similarly restricted page and then only the admins will be able to add options to the dropdown. Let me know if you have any follow up questions.
