Permissions depend upon which groups you are a member of. Some facts may be invisible to you, others might be viewable but you don't have the permission to edit.
factline Community Server Groups function as an inclusive Group-System.
Therefore, if a fact gives read permission to two groups, it is enough to be a member of one of said groups
to be able to read this fact.
So, if fact X gives read-permissions to Group A and Group B, User F is able to read this fact in the
following three cases:
User F is a member of Group A
User F is a member of Group B
User F is a member of Group A AND Group B
Basically 3 groups have to be distinguished:
- System groups:
These are groups that are created as a standard by the system. No users have to be assigned to these groups by the p-admin, since the allocation takes place automatically.
||All logged-in and non-logged-in persons.
||All users, who are registered on any factline-platform
|Platform main group
||This group contains users who are registered on your platform. For this group the system will assign the name of your platform; the indication could also be changed from the p-admin
- Self-defined groups:
These are groups which are built and overseen by the p-admin. For every platform it is possible to create any number of authoritiy groups. This happens by the p-admin. Each group is able to have any numbers of assigned users. Backwards, users are able to attend to any number of groups.
- Virtual Groups
The fact creation process always ends with the choosing of permissions regarding your new fact. For more information, please read Assign permissions to groups.
