To run an FCS platform, people with three different levels of privileges are needed. In order to understand these levels, we would like to begin by giving a short explanation.
There are 3 levels of privileges in the hierarchy:
- System administrator ("S-Admin"):
The system administrator assigns one ore more platform administrators ("P-Admin") to each platform.
- Platform administrator ("P-Admin"):
The platform administrator provides each user group with access and/or publishing rights for particular services.
Users set permissions for the content ("facts") they create.
If factline acts as an application service provider (ASP), the system runs on a server powered by factline. In this case, factline takes over the tasks of the S-Admin.
