authentication:authentication-permissions-instance authentication authentication-permissions-instance Controlling access to an instance Here's how to restrict access to your entire Datasette instance to just the "id": "root" user: { "title": "My private Datasette instance", "allow": { "id": "root" } } To deny access to all users, you can use "allow": false : { "title": "My entirely inaccessible instance", "allow": false } One reason to do this is if you are using a Datasette plugin - such as datasette-permissions-sql - to control permissions instead.
