Does "Super user" exist?

Hello, I can assign permisions/visibility to objects. I'd like to restrict them to 'user'. But I'd like to have one super user, which can access all data - no matter if there are in 'app' or 'user' range. We would like to use this platform, but our application require some additional processing which should not be done on mobile application side. Thus we got idea to add our custom server (which could read/write all data from/to to the stack, and allow to get/update data.

Hi Michal,

A super-user can be created by ensuring that the data you create is shared with that user. If you set the readPermissions on an object to User, you can then share that object with your super-user (and only that super-user). All the details are at the access permissions link you mention above.

If you need server-side processing, we are in private beta on our Parse offering. If you haven't gotten too far down the path of development on our standard Buddy Platform offering, using our Parse offering may be a good choice for you. For details, see And send me an email at [email protected] if you'd like to be added to the beta.
