PERMISSIONS – Need a detailed description of all Jahia 6.5 Permissions

by  sjay »  2011/09/07 22:00

Out of the documentation available online,

http://www.jahia.com/cms/home/community/documentation.html

I have found that there are 12 main groups or “categories” that all permissions fall under.

 

  1. actions (ability to participate to a blog, to leave comments…)
  2. admin (access settings for the various administration items)
  3. contributeMode (access settings for the Contribute Mode)
  4. editMode (access settings for the Edit Mode and customization of the Edit Mode)
  5. job (background jobs management settings)
  6. managers (access to management modules: categories, tags, documents, repositories...)
  7. repository-permissions (read/write/edit permissions on the live and default worspaces)
  8. studioMode (access rights and customization of the Studio)
  9. templates (rights for the use of templates available on the platform)
  10. webapps (rights for the use of portlets or Webapps deployed on the system)
  11. wokflow-tasks (settings for the workflow steps accessible with the role)
  12. wysiwyg-editor-toolbar (settings for the type of FCK editor associated with the role)

 

However, these 12 groups have sub-groups and  those may have other sub-groups going down 2 or 3 levels.

 

What I am looking for is a *detailed description* of each of these permissions.

For example, there is a permission called:

editMode > editSelector > latestSelector

 

I would like to know what the effect would be to a “Role” if this permission is enabled/disabled.

 

At least a listing of all of these permissions one by one, would be a great to have.

The text in the CMS itself (Manage Roles > Permissions tab) is not selectable, and therefore not able to get a list of all of these permissions either.

 

Any info on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello sjay,

    Here is a documentation that may help you :

    http://www.jahia.com/community/documentation/jahiapedia/roles/index.html

    We didn't have time to document every permissions as most of their names are quite explicit. But thanks to your feedback, we plan to go through every permissions to make sure that they are explicit enough for the community to understand them.

    Regards,

    Fabrice
