Manage groups & permissions

Groups are used to grant permissions to the users.

  • Programme Coordinator: Can add, change, delete and view every model of the program application: Category, FundingCategory, Host, HostLink, Image, Language, License, LinkType, MusicFocus, Note, NoteLink, RRule, Schedule, Show, ShowLink, TimeSlot, Topic and Type.

  • Host: Can add, change, delete and view Note and NoteLink models.

  • Host+: Can change a Host model in order to edit the biography and name fields, can edit the language and topic fields of a Note model and can change a Show model in order to edit the description, name and short_description fields.

Please note that changes in group permissions and assignments can only be done by superusers.

At the moment there is no dedicated user interface in Dashboard to manage users and groups. Therefore any changes need to be done in the Steering administration interface, reachable via the radio station administration of Dashboard.

List groups

Click “Gruppen” to get a list of available groups.

Edit group

To edit the group click the its name in the list.

In that user interface you can change the group’s name or edit the set of permissions for that group.

Add group

To add a group click the button Gruppe hinzufügen.

Please note, that this should be planned with the IT administration, since group are usually carefully planned and defined within the whole organisation.

Permissions

By default, Django defines four permissions for each model: “add”, “change”, “delete” and “view”.

These are enough for the majority of the models: Category, FundingCategory, HostLink, Image, Language, License, LinkType, MusicFocus, NoteLink, RRule, Schedule, ShowLink, TimeSlot, Topic, Type and UserProfile can only be added, changed, deleted by authenticated users with these privileges.

All the models are read-only for non authenticated users.

For four models (Host, Note, Show and TimeSlot) additional permissions are defined to allow users to “edit” or “display” fields they are otherwise not allowed to:[1]
