In this tutorial, we will go through permissions, profiles, inviting guest users to our project, and giving them access through Umajin Editor.
- The Umajin Editor downloaded and installed.
- Your favorite internet browser.
Permissions define how the project behaves in Umajin Editor. It allows the project user to invite new users, and give them a specific type of access to that particular project. While the permissions are somewhat easy to find, it is not always clear how these settings impact the project behavior.
There are two ways to open the Permission page:
Open your project in the Umajin Editor, and click on the project name at the left corner.
Next, at the bottom of the Properties inspector, click on the Manage permission profiles button (see below for picture). This should open the permission page using your default browser.
The second way to open the permission page is through cloud services.
Click on the File>Open Cloud Services
It will open the Cloud Services webpage, in which you can find the permission tab on the left sidebar.
Profiles can be defined as access rights that are given to the users by the admin. That is, what can and cannot a specific user will be able to do within the project.
To see the Profiles, open the permission page as mentioned above in this post, and you will find the Profiles above the Users option.
By default, there are two profile sets created for you.
Full access: It allows users to perform any changes in the project. By default, the admin has all the rights for the project.
Author: It allows users to perform only limited changes in the project ( Settings can be changed by clicking the edit button on the left side).
The admin can also create new profile sets with any combination of access permissions for the users. Click on the Add profile button, give any preferred name, description, and manage the access permission to different options, and click on save when done.
This will create a new profile set, which can then be given to specific users while inviting, or in the Users option which we will see below.
Users are those you invite to your project to whom you can also set limited or unlimited access (via profiles). There are two ways to invite users to the project, either through the Umajin Editor or through the ‘Permissions’ tab in the Umajin Cloud.
Successfully added Users appear here, where you will be able to change their Profile access or remove them as well.
Note: You are unable to change your User permissions for your project. It ensures that at least one of the users will always have ‘Full Access’ that prevents a complete lockout.
The project will now be added to the new User’s project list and have access to the content that is available for the Profile.
