Title

Data Separation and User Security

Post

I have been reading several posts about the how to manage user accounts in the data separation model.

I thought that one of the drivers for adopting this model was that you could then maintain and publish/distribute the Program file without needing to freeze the Data file**.

However, it seems you always need user account information in the Program file? If this is the case then surely you cannot overwrite the Program file with your next version without blatting the user info.

I hope I misunderstand, and someone can give me some guidance on how to truly separate the Program file so it can be re-published at will.

[** I recognise that if you need to make data structure changes then inevitably the data file needs to be amended.]
