Managing rights profiles and profile assignments


Rights profiles

The profiles listed and created through this interface (administration) are general profiles. They will be available for all sites.
Any webmaster (or user with group creation rights) can also create local profiles through the CMS interface ( Users, groups and rights tab CMS). These can only be used for the site in question. General profiles can only be viewed through this tool ( CMS interface), but cannot be modified in any way.

The Rights Profiles tool opens. On the left is a list of available rights profiles, and on the right a list of rights currently associated with the selected profile. These rights are grouped into categories:

Profile assignment

Profile assignments made through this interface (administration) are made in the administration context.
Any webmaster (or user with the rights associated with group creation) can also assign rights profiles through the CMS interface ( Users, groups and rights tab of CMS). These will be applied to other contexts, such as content, pages, resources, etc.

View profile assignments

In the Users, groups and rights tab, click on the Profile assignment button:

The Profile Assignment tool opens. Assignments are presented in the form of a table. Columns represent profiles, rows represent users or user groups to which profiles are assigned:

From this table, you can assign user groups to different application rights profiles.

An assignment can have 3 states:

  •  indicates that no profile assignment could be determined for this user group,
  •  indicates that the rights profile is assigned to the user group,
  •  indicates that the user group is excluded from the rights profile.

Non-full icons, for example represent inherited assignment states. Above, Laurence Aumeunier has developer profile rights and is excluded from contributor rights because she is a member of the Developers group.
