By granting users global permissions, the users are given authorizations which do not relate to working with individual files, but to administrative activities. A user who, for example, has user administration permission may create, edit or delete logins. Specifically, the following global permissions can be granted:
permissionGlobalRoot): Users to whom this permission has been granted possess all authorizations. An administrator is also referred to as a superuser . This permission is always required if no other permission is sufficient for performing an action (such as creating or editing jobs).
permissionGlobalUserEdit): Create, edit or delete login names and user groups; grant permissions
permissionGlobalUserAttributeEdit): Create, edit or delete user fields
permissionGlobalRTCEdit): Create, edit or delete file formats, fields, channels, and workflows.
permissionGlobalExport): Execute commands with which folders can be exported.
permissionGlobalMirrorHandling): This permission is required for creating mirror files. Additionally, the file-specific restrictions apply, meaning that the user requires the
permissionCreateChildrenpermission for the folder concerned.
In addition to the permissions mentioned, additional global permissions, such as
e. g. permissions for the use of formats, can be freely defined in the
globalPermissions entry in the
configuration file of the Content Management Server: In each format definition, one of
the predefined or additional permissions can be specified so that a user can only create
files based on that format if he or she has this global permission.
