isActionAllowed #

Specifies if an action is allowed, denied or conditional based on the rights provided as the first argument:

  • allowed is returned when an action is authorized without condition
  • conditional is returned when the authorization depends on a closure
  • denied is returned when the action is forbidden

An action is defined as a pair of action and controller (mandatory), plus an index and a collection(optional).

You can get the rights from Kuzzle by using [`Security.getUserRights`](/sdk/js/5/core-classes/security/get-user-rights) and [`Kuzzle.getMyRights`](/sdk/js/5/core-classes/kuzzle/get-my-rights).
