Access Control

Getting Started

TheocBase uses a role based access control for users that have access to the shared data in the cloud. Each user is assigned to the publisher role by default with the exception of the one, who shares the data, who is also administrator.

The administrator can assign further roles to users and himself. Roles provide a set of permissions, so a person that is assigned to a certain role, is granted the permissions provided by the role.

The following list provides the available roles with their respective permissions:

Assign a Role to a User

  1. In the Settings select the Access Control page.
  2. After the list of users is loaded, select in the user's row the check box of the role that should be assigned.
    Note:
    Only those users appear in the list, that have already access to the shared TheocBase folder in your DropBox account. It is possible to assign multiple roles.
  3. Restart TheocBase to apply the changes.
