Application access settings Application developers can use table application access settings to allow or prevent the creation of application files for their application tables. You can specify what application artifacts are available to other custom applications in different application scopes. These permissions are in addition to the standard access controls (ACLs) that determine whether users can access data in the custom application table from the user interface. Application developers can also protect script-based application files by making them read-only or hiding them from application users. For more information about scripting options, see Scripting in Scoped Applications.
