Onboarding new people

From confocalpedia

This page describes how to onboard new people at confocalpedia.

There are two ways new user accounts can be acquired:
  1. The interested person requests an account and a "Coordinator" approves the request.
  2. A "Coordinator" creates an account for a person.

After an account was created a "Coordinator" immediately assigns the designated user group(s) i.e. role(s) to the respective account.

  • Every new account is automatically assigned to the "User" user group. The only way to revoke this assignment is to block the account.
  • All permissions associated to a user group are supplementary permissions, i.e. a "Coordinator" must also be assigned to the user groups "Editor" and "Author" and an "Editor" must also be assigned to user group "Author".
