Read and Write Permissions
If you are an Administrator, you can manage read and write permissions to restrict user groups from reading and writing to folders, maps, and files.
Heretto CCMS includes two general types of user roles (Administrator and non-Administrator roles). For more information, see User Roles, Permissions, and Privileges.
Administrators can allow or deny user groups to read and write:
- Folders (including or excluding subfolders)
- Maps (including or excluding map dependencies and resource-only files)
If you are unable to change the read permissions for a given file/folder, contact your Customer Success Manager.
There are two permission types that determine what a user group can do with a particular folder, map, or file.
- Read Permissions
- If you don't have permissions to read a resource, you:
- Cannot see or access the resource in the content library
- Cannot branch, release, edit, and run reports on the resource
- Cannot see the resource in the Activity interface
- Cannot access the resource through a WebDAV connection (for example, while using oXygen)
- Can publish the resource but its content is replaced with restricted access notification in the output
- Can only see restricted link text of the links that lead to the resource
- Write Permissions
- If you don't have permissions to write to a resource, you cannot:
- Edit the resource in the Content Editor or Source Editor
- Edit the resource metadata
- Manage the resource in the content library (for example, move, lock, or rename the resource)
- Edit the resource through a WebDAV connection (for example, while using oXygen)
- Update the resource locales
- By default, all users have access to the entire content library.
- If you apply multiple access rules, the first rule takes precedence over the rest of
Example: If a user is denied permissions by the first rule but is also granted permissions by the second rule, the user would be denied permission because the first rule takes precedence.
- Administrators can be restricted from
accessing folders, maps or files just like regular users. However, Administrators can add themselves to user groups
that have access to a particular folder, map, or file at any time.Remember: We recommend to carefully select your Heretto CCMS Administrators.
