Available Privileges

Privileges themselves are access rights to the various administrative functions and services of MobileTogether Server. When a user logs in to MobileTogether Server (either via its Web UI or services interface), the user's access rights are determined by the user's privileges. Privileges are assigned to the user either directly or via roles, in the Users and Roles tab.

The available privileges are described below.

 

hmtoggle_plus1Maintain users, roles and privileges

Any user having this privilege can create, delete and edit users and roles, their privilege assignments and passwords. This is an administrative privilege and should only be assigned to MobileTogether administrators. By default, only the user "root" possesses this privilege.

 

hmtoggle_plus1Set own password

Any user having this privilege can change his own password. Users who do not have this privilege need to have their password set by a MobileTogether administrator. By default the "authenticated" role, and hence every user account except "anonymous", possesses this privilege.

 

hmtoggle_plus1Override security

Any user having this privilege can change permissions in the container hierarchy without needing  "write" security permission.

This is an administrative privilege and should only be assigned to MobileTogether administrators. By default, only "root" possesses this privilege.
