Roles and rights

In elium there is a distinction between the generic role of the users (system role), independent of their affiliation to spaces, and a specific role per space.

The combination of the system role and the role in the space grants the user certain rights.

Some typical examples of profiling rights

Scenario A

Usage : This is a much-used combination for outside people, suppliers, trainees who are given only very specific access.

Scenario B

Scénario B

This user does not have a personal space; he/she only sees spaces to which the administrator granted access; he/she has contribution and tagging rights in space A.

Usage : For people who only have very limited rights, except for a specific space A.

Scenario C

Scénario C

This user has a personal space; he/she can freely go to public spaces and only has read-only rights in space A.

Usage : For people having contribution rights except for space A. For example, for blocking contribution in certain spaces where only some users guard content.

Scenario D

He/she can freely go to public spaces and has contribution rights in space A (add content and metadata).

Usage : For all groups of users who are not treated specifically.
