Re:[Bricolage-General] permission setup in bric

Hi all,

Trying to set up permissions for a new group I created (Global Non-Network
Admin), which would ideally give permissions for everything except
Distribution. Everything works, except I'm unable to create anything new in
the PUBLISHING area (although I can view). My object group permissions for
all areas in publishing are set to CREATE (although I tried EDIT mode just
for kicks, and there was no difference).

Is this a bug or am I missing something? Can only the Global Admin have
access to create PUBLISH elements?

Thanks!
Rachel

sorry referring to PUBLISHING under ADMIN, not the publish desk

First of all, what do you mean by "PUBLISH elements"? Do you mean
publish desks?

Otherwise, it sounds like you have done everything right.

Okay. I think that the simplest way to get what you want is not to
create a new group, but to simply use the existing groups. Add users you
want to have those permissions to the following groups:

System Admins
Publishing Admins
Story Editors
Media Producers
Template Developers

If, OTOH, you still want to use just one group, Just make sure that you
give create permissions to all the groups of objects named for the items
under the PUBLISING menu in the side nav, e.g., "All Categories", "All
Output Channels", "All Elements", etc.

HTH,

David

Nope, i think this is a bug. I'm about to put it in bric-bugzilla, but
first I'll tell ya here.

here're the different scenarios I created:

*Created an 'everythingbut' user, where I gave the user all groups EXCEPT
GlobalAdmin. This user cannot create anything in PUBLISHING under ADMIN

*Created a different 'everythingbut' user, and a new group 'Global
Non-Network Admin', whereby they have CREATE access for everything (and EDIT
access where there's no CREATE choice given). This user still cannot create
anything in PUBLISHING under ADMIN

*Created a 'publishing' user, defined as only having 'publishing group'
access. Still no ability to create anything in the publishing category.

Seems there's a discrepency between what GLOBAL ADMIN can do and what is
actually defined somewhere in the code as to what any other user can do.

Does this make sense?

Thanks,
Rachel

Yes, and you're right, it does sound like a bug. I'll look into it ASAP.
Just FYI, though, the "Global Admins" group is a special group wherein
permissions are never checked for its members. Thus the discrepancy. I'm
guessing that somehow, Bricolage is failing to check permissions for the
PUBLISHING menu items.

I'll post followups to your bug report.

Thanks,

David
