Description

Callimachus Permissions is how administrators have the ability to control who sees what in a given Callimachus instance. Different levels of access can be defined on a per-group basis depending on how public or private you want your Callimachus instance to be.

Access

Permissions can be set on a per-resource basis by accessing the main menu and selecting "Permissions" when viewing any Callimachus resource.

Usage

Callimachus Permissions offers five levels of increasing access:

  • Reader
    • Readers can view a read-only copy of the resource
  • Subscriber
    • Subscribers can view, see the history, and discuss the resource
  • Contributor
    • Contributors can create new resources in that defined space and edit the newly created resources
  • Editor
    • Editors can make changes using the edit tab and create new resources in that defined space
  • Administrator
    • Administrators can view, create and modify using any available operation

Under each of these permission levels different user groups can be assigned. For example, take a look at the default permission settings for the home folder (/?view). 

The following statements can be asserted from permissions edit tab:

  • The Public and System user groups have been given permission to view the Home Folder
  • The Everyone user group has been given permission to view the Home Folder, its history, and make comments on the resource discussion tab
  • The Users user group has been given permission to create and edit new resources in the Home Folder
  • The Power and Staff user groups have been given permission to create and edit new and existing resources in the Home Folder
  • The Admin user group has been given permission to perform any available operation on the Home Folder.

New user groups can be created and assigned custom permissions in this fashion.
