Apply custom roles to presentations and content library

I have setup some custom roles in the web UI so that there is a hierarchical structure. User 1 can see everything (Basically administrator) User 2 can't see user 1's groups, but can see their own as well as Users 3 4 5 and 6. User 3 can't see user 2's information, but can see user 4 5 6. User 4 can't see user 1 2 3 but can see their own and users 5 6. And so on. This works wonderfully for groups and devices, in the web UI and in BrightAuthor. Unfortunately, users 2 3 4 5 & 6 can all see each others content libraries and presentations stored in the cloud. Is there a way to restrict content made by certain roles?

    You can click on the properties of a project and set which users or roles can see it. You can do the same for the contents in the Library. You can also create folders in your Library and apply permissions to the folders.

    I do see that now. Is there a way to automate this, so I don't have to micromanage every piece of content that is uploaded? For instance, is there way I could make the User 2 role unable to see anything the User 1 role creates? Even If I have to manually go through and edit each role to make this happen, it would be easier than setting permissions on each piece of content. Thanks!

    No, you can't do this.

    In BSN you can specify the permissions only for the operations and for the objects.

    Permissions for the objects (presentations, contents) are not created automatically. You need to set them manually for each object.

    Tabea,

    You can't create and edit BA access levels. You can only select one for a user. Below is the list of permissions which different BA access levels offer.

    Note: These are for BrightAuthor versions 3.8 and later. In BrightAuthor 3.7, Setup was only available to Administrators.

     

    BA Administrators

    • Setup
    • Upload
    • Publish
    • View Devices
    • ViewModifyContent
    • ModifyDevices

     

    BA Creators

    • Setup
    • Upload
    • ViewModifyContent

     

    BA Network Managers

    • Setup
    • Modify Devices
    • View Devices

     

    BA Publishers

    • Setup
    • Publish

     

    BA Viewers

    • Setup
    • View Devices

    Hi,

    How can I fix a user who has all permissions like an administrator but can not delete anything?
    At the web-interface is it working well but not so in the BrightAuthor. How can I handle this?

    It's very important!

    Thanks, Tabea

    What do you mean can't delete anything? What works in Web UI and doesn't work in BA? Please give a specific example. Have you set BrightAuthor access level to BA Administrators in the properties of a user?

    We want to create a role for John who has all permissions on the BrightSign Network and the BrightAuthor like an administrator. The only differnece is that John can not delet a group, a presentation or a picture. I made for John a new role with this permission. And this works properly.

    But... as soon as John works with the BrightAuthor and not with the web UI can he delet all presentations and pictures etc.(in the manage task). Thats why I set the BA Administrator Access Level.

    Which BA Access Level does he need for my requirement?

    I don't understand your requirement. You want to give a user the Administrator permissions, except that he should NOT be able to delete a group, a presentation and media files on your account?

    1. Create a user, click on the properties of that user and set BrightAuthor access level = BA Administrators.

    2. Go to Account - Permissions tab, and create a new role. Give it a name. Select "Copy permissions from" - Administrators.

    3. Under Operations tab expand Group (Full Control) section, click on Delete Group permission, select a role that you created in step 2 and drag it to the "Permissions for Delete Group" box. Set permission to "Deny".

    4. Repeat step 3 in order to deny "Presentation (Full Control) - Delete Presentation" and "Content (Full Control) - Delete Content" permissions for the role.

    5. Go to Account - Users and Roles tab and add a user to the newly configured role.
