SSPR REST Services

I was wondering if someone is using this feature of SSPR, and if someone has a detailed explanation of this option:

Web Services Third Party Permissions:
Add an LDAP filter that contains the users permitted to execute REST web services and specify a third party via the 'username' parameter.

What does it mean? Does it mean that a "trusted" user may for example query another user's profile data? It's not very clear to me from the official documentation.

Thanks in advance!

Re: SSPR REST Services

for me it sounds like the users that is included in the filter is allowed to use the REST API .. Im not totally sure but If you use a sspr proxy, user you are able to modify the directory with that proxy user´s permission otherwise it is the authenticated user´s permission .. So make sure you protect the API acordingly ..
