Permissions are defined for each individual fact. Usually, the publisher can set permissions on his/her own. The option “Mandatory Permissions” allows the p-admin to either provide users with a mandatory pre-selection of permissions or to leave them out completely.
In order to set mandatory permissions, proceed as follows:
|1| Choose "Groups & Users" from the main menu by clicking on it.
|2| Click on the "perm."-button in the row "Mandatory permissions".
|3| Now you see two rows. You should always check one row after the other:
|4| Click on the "perm."-button in the row "Groups affected by mandatory permissions".
Choose the group(s) which should be provided with mandatory permissions in the column "apply".
|Choose the group(s) which should not be able to set permissions at all in the column hide.
* Select groups that will be affected by the mandatory permissions
** Select groups for which the permissions interface will NOT be displayed (they cant select permissions at all)
Example: If you select groups A and B for "apply", and leave group C unchecked, that means that if a user is a member of group C, no matter if he is or not member of the other two, he will not be affected by the mandatory permissions. Same is true for the hide option - all groups of a user must be selected if you want him to not be able to select permissions at all.
|6| Click on “save” to submit your settings.
|7| Click on the "perm."-button in the row "Select mandatory permissions".
|8| Decide which groups should be provided with read, modify and/or work permissions for all facts.
