Public Enumeration BdcRights
Dim instance As BdcRights
public enum BdcRights


Member name Description
None Does not allow the user to execute, edit, or set permissions on the object. However, the user can still view the application and entities in the UI.
Execute Execute the MethodInstance object via various run-time API calls.
Edit Update, delete, or create child objects; add, remove, or clear properties; add, remove, or clear localized display names.
SetPermissions Set or copy permissions to child objects. This is the most powerful right. Having this right means you can give yourself or anyone else any other right. This is like the admin right.
UseInBusinessDataInLists This right has been deprecated in the Business Data Catalog.
SelectableInClients Use the entities in Business Data client features such as Business Data Web Parts and Business Data Lists.


Each object in the Business Data Catalog hierarchy of metadata objects (Application, Entity, Method, MethodInstance, Parameter, TypeDescriptor, and so on) has an access control list (ACL) that specifies which principals have which rights on the object. Of the 13 metadata objects, only LobSystem, Entity, Method, and MethodInstance have ACLs that can be controlled individually. These objects are referred to as Individually Securable metadata objects. Other metadata objects inherit the ACL from their immediate parents and are referred to as Access-controlled metadata objects.
