Access Controls (Permissions)

Access Control Types

Colectica Repository has two forms of access control:

Type Enforcement (TE), or Item Type Permissions
Type enforcement is based on the type of item being accessed in the Repository.
Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), or Item Permissions
Based around individual items and user permissions.
Multi-Level Security (MLS)
A combination of type enforcement and role based access controls.

Permission Types

Denied Write
Denied write will prevent a named user or group from creating a new version of an item or modifying an existing version with external metadata. This also applies to all items of a type for creation and modification in TE.
Exclusive Write
If an Exclusive Write permission is present, only users and groups who have an Exclusive Write flag will be allowed to create a new version of an item or modify an existing item with external metadata. This also applies to all items of a type for creation and modification in TE.
