Today, Facebook has released a set of features that aim to make Facebook Platform application management more secure!
For details, see the following Developer Blog: Application Roles and Security Features
Basically, other than getting a single role of “developer in managing the application, the following application roles can now available:
- Administrator – complete access to the application and all its settings
- Developer – can modify all technical settings and access Insights but cannot reset secret key, delete application, or add additional users
- Tester – can test the application in sandbox mode but cannot modify the application
- Insights User – can access Insights but cannot modify the application
This feature is really a nice one!
For example, we can now invite our client to become a tester so that they can test the application. In the pasrt, allowing a client to test the application mean opening the application to the public.
