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.
All Elium users, whatever their role, have universal rights.
- Like a content, comment or status update,
- Comment on a content and change/delete his/her comments,
- Browse or search the knowledge base,
- Save a search and subscribe to an alert,
- Communicate by means of private messaging.
Some typical examples of profiling rights
This user does not have a personal space; he/she only sees spaces to which the administrator granted access (cannot see all the public spaces); he/she only has read-only rights in space A; he/she cannot tag.
Usage : This is a much-used combination for outside people, suppliers, trainees who are given only very specific access.
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.
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.
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.
He/she receives additional rights to contents in space A:
- mention a space
- add or delete others' tags
- archive or delete others' content
He/she receives additional rights, supplementary to the coordinator of space A:
