Access bundles are used to grant access rights to files/folders to groups of users who do not already have (a particular kind of) access to such file.
An access bundle can be associated with either all users of a customer, and/or with the users of one or more groups. Individual users cannot be made part of an access bundle: you have to assign them to a specific group first, and then associate the group with one or more access bundles.
Each access bundle can grant use, edit and create rights.
- Having a use right means that you can see the contents of a certain file — in other systems this is also called “read rights”. (In ClauseBase, however, we chose to label it “use rights”, because this right for example also allows you to insert a clause into your document, which is broader than mere reading.)
- Having edit rights means that you can edit the contents of a certain file — in other systems this is also called “edit rights”. If you have edit rights, you also have the right to delete a file.
- Creation rights are only relevant for folders. They specify that someone has the right to create new items (clauses, subfolders, concepts, etc.) within a folder.
Access bundles can be created in the access bundles page of your settings, or centrally by your administrator.
