ACL advantages?

0 votes
Hello there. When I created the app, I chose not to enable ACL. Now as we approach the release of the game and as ACL can't be turned on, I'm wondering what are the pros and cons of having ACL enabled?

Otherwise said, if you allow the developer to choose to set ACL on or off at app creation step, it means that having it disabled has some kind of advantage. What is it?

Shall we migrate our current collections to another ACL enabled app, before the game is released?

Please advise.

Hello Vladislav,

Having an ACL enable app means that app is  more secure in the way that one app user cannot access data of another user until user gives the permission to access it. In Non-ACL app any user can access data of another user. Please have a look at this to know more about securing the app data and let us know if it helps.
