cBot & Indicator Access Rights

All the custom automated trading systems (cBots) and indicators have an option in the code to set the security level or access rights when running within the cTrader platform on a users machine, in order to protect users against any malware the code is run in a sandbox environment. The cBots and indicators have access right declarations in the robot or indicator attribute as shown below.

Access Right Options

It is possible to also combine access rights to have 1 or more of the following, having no access rights at all will limit the functionality of a cBot or indicator.

// Class code


The cBot or indicator has no access rights and will not be able to interact with the user's machine for saving files, connecting to the internet or anything else.


This provides access to the user's machine to read and write files, like text, JSON, XML etc.


This provides access to the internet to retrieve external data like price quotes or other data feeds.


This provides access to the windows registry which is sometimes used to read and write application information.


This provides unlimited access to provide a rich user interface, retrieve external data feeds, save important trade information and any other benefit for the user.

Default Behaviour

If cBot or Custom Indicator doesn’t specify the desired access rights, AccessRights.FullAccess is considered to be chosen.
