Access Rights control who has permission to do specific actions in each and every area or element of your intranet. The following access rights can be controlled:
- read: User can read the content
- post: User can add new content
- modify: User can change existing content
- admin: User can access the administration tabs of the application
Noodle uses Access Rights to limit what a user can see and change.
- Rights are often used for requirements like "hide the managers applications section from the sales department."
- Group Rights allow for simplified rights management (generally user rights should only be used for special case users).
- Group Rights are additive and are overridden by user rights.
- Restricting read rights on a folder will prevent it, portlets linking to it, and items in it (what's new) from being seen by the users in the restricted group.
- The admin user (username=admin, not users in the admin group) has full rights on everything regardless of Access Rights.
- You can view folder rights from a user or group perspective or vice versa, user and group rights from a folder.
- In addition to rights you can disable most features and applications to fulfill your needs.
