After a Data Permissions filter has been defined within the project, you may assign it to the individual users within the project.

Data Permissions were formerly called Mandatory User Filters.


  1. Use the following API call to get the list of Data Permissions filters for the project:

  2. In the JSON response, you should see an entry similar to the following: 

    	"link": "/gdc/md/{project-id}/obj/{filter-object-id}",
    	"author": "/gdc/account/profile/{user-id}",
    	"tags": "",
    	"created": "2012-01-16 11:08:13",
    	"deprecated": "0",
    	"summary": "",
    	"title": "User Filter Name",
    	"category": "userFilter",
    	"updated": "2012-01-16 11:08:13",
    	"contributor": "/gdc/account/profile/{user-id}"
  3. In the JSON for that entry, the link value (/gdc/md/{project-id}/obj/{filter-object-id} in the above) provides the URI for the internal ID for the Data Permissions filter. Acquire this value.
  4. POST to the following API to apply the user filter to a specific user:

  5. The JSON POST should be in the following format: 

    "userFilters": {
    		"items": [
    				"user": "/gdc/account/profile/{user-id}",
    				"userFilters": [
  6. In the response, a value corresponding to the user’s profile for the successful parameter indicates that the Data Permissions filter was applied to the user.

    200 (OK)
    Content-Type: application/json
    	"userFiltersUpdateResult": {
    		"failed": [],
    		"successful": [
