PDS Use Cases
Get card from gallery
Note: Cards represent a relationship between the user and an external site or business. The relationship includes a bi-directional data channel that shares and synchronizes a site-specific set of attributes between the site and the user's PDS. This set is a subset of the user's overall set of attributes.

- She sees a new Google Ads card in her list of cards
- Alice is already logged in to her PDS web client
- The PDS includes a card gallery
- PDS gallery is pre-configured with a set of template contexts and one of these is the Google Ads template.
- Template vocabulary shows an example template--this example is the Google Ads template
- Design issues
- Q: How does the PDS code know by inspection of the card gallery whether the PDS user is the definer/creator of the template? In other words how does it know which role (definer vs. participant) it should play?
- A: If the card is in the gallery at all, we will assume it was defined by an external (non-user) definer. We'll put user-defined templates somewhere else.
