Capabilities and object permissions determine which data a project participant can access and which functions he can use edit objects (e.g. documents, drawings or messages).
Capabilities are managed in projects by roles and determine which applications and functions the project participants can use, for example: create documents or to use the tender module.
Capabilities are bundled together in roles and are assigned to individual project participants. When a new Project Space or a new organization is created two standard roles "Default Project Creator / Standard Projektinitiator" and "Default Project Participant / Standard Projektteilnehmer" are automatically generated.
All project participants are automatically assigned the "Default Project Participant / Standard Projektteilnehmer" role and, as a result, can use the most important basic functions. If you liked to assign administration permissions to a project participant in your project you must assign him the standard role "Default Project Creator / Standard Projektinitiator" or any other administration role (which you created).
In addition, a project administrator can assign further capabilities to project participants via standard roles or new, created roles. A project participant can thus be assigned to several roles. The capabilities are additionally available to him.
|Note: If you need certain capabilities for a project, you can have these enabled by ORACLE as an additional module (e.g. tenders or workflows) for the project.|
Object Permissions (read , write , and full access ) regulate the access to objects (e.g. folders, documents, or drawings). Each permission enables you to do certain actions with an object, such as viewing, downloading, or editing.
Permissions are assigned via the object Properties to groups or participants. We recommend to assign permissions for folders and files only to groups as you can administer these permission via the Folder-Permissions-Matrix. Additionally you will have a better overview about who has access to which folders and files when using groups.
