hello I want to create role based policies to restrict users in specific group to certain projects. So for example I have multiple users working on project A I want them to only modify repo A while other users working on project B only able to modify B. Do I need to create developer policy for each repo A and B and attach them to group A and group B or does someone have a smarter way

Hi @mohamed islam, role based access control is a lakeFS cloud feature. You can learn more about it here
The OSS supports access control lists as described here

Hi. Do I understand correctly, that there is no way in the open-source version to restrict a group of users to read data in a particular repository? As in: give read rights only to some of the users on not to others?
