Rights management

    Each right is represented by a membership between a user and a specific resource. The resource may be a group, a project, or a worker.

    Depending on your role, you will have different privileges on each resources.


    The permission granted by a membership is defined by a role allowing specific permissions.


    Guest is the lowest access level.

    A guest is only able to access resources concerned by its right. For example a guest member on a project will be allowed to access its associated resources (e.g. elements, transcriptions etc...) with a read-only access.


    Contributor is the intermediate access level.

    A contributor is able to add new information with restrictions. For example, a contributor of a project is able to create a transcription on an element, or a metadata.


    An administrator has the highest access level.

    • They may edit other members on the target they administer
    • They may create/edit or delete any resource depending on the target

    In other terms, an administrator of a project is allowed to delete a metadata on an element, delete the element itself and even delete the entire project.

    Grant access to resources🔗

    A role on a resource grants different access levels depending on the resource nature and role level.

    Group access🔗

    Groups memberships can be accessed from your profile page. Please refer to manage a group section for more information.

    Project access🔗

    You can manage access rights to a project if you have an admin access yourself.

    Once on the corpus management page, permissions can be edited from the members section at the bottom of the page. Members of a project can either be users or groups.

    Members can be deleted using the trash button. Their access level can be edited directly from the table. Those actions are disabled for non admin members.

    To add a new member, you may use the form at the bottom of the table. The identifier is an email address for a user or an unique ID for a group. You may have to ask the group ID to one of its member if you are not a member yourself.

    Please note that as for other resources, at least one user or group must have an admin right to a project.

    Repository access🔗

    Repository management works in a similar way as for projects. A repository member may access it from the repositories list page, accessible from My repositories in the top right user menu.

    An access given to a repository will automatically grant the same access to all of its associated workers.

    Worker access🔗

    Workers are resources required to run Machine Learning workflows. Workers inherit of the roles owned on their repository (e.g. a repository administrator has an administrator access to all of its depending workers). A worker may have no member (i.e. no administrator) as it rely on its repository.

    A user can see the workers they can execute from My workers in the top right user menu. From this page, it is possible to list both versions and members of a single worker by selecting it on the left panel.

    An admin member of a repository may independently manage a worker by clicking on the worker name in the repository list.

    The Members section is located at the bottom of the management page of a worker.

    Worker permission table🔗


    A Guest role has no meaning for workers as a Contributor role is required to list or execute them.

    Processes access🔗

    Processes are mainly used to import data on a project or process existing elements (e.g. classify or create transcriptions). The access to a process is defined by rights on the project they run. A user may track the progress of a visible process, with its tasks artifacts.
