Documents Module Security

 

This page covers both Documents and Document Folder module security.

 

Documents Module

 

Access to Document Folder required

To access a Document - User has to have access to the Document and to the Document's Folder at the same time

Roles which User has against the Folder do not affect Roles that user has against the Document

If Document does not have Folder specified - restriction of having access to the document's folder is not applied

 

Assignments are additive

If User has access to a document by at least one rule - User is able to see the Document

If User has access to a document with some Role by at least one rule - User is able to do all operations with the Document which the Role allows
