Users, roles
How to manage Users and Roles, access control.
This is for Admin level users only. If you don't see the Admin menu, you need to ask for full adminstrator access to the Entrada interface.
User management is done through the Entrada interface. If you have the correct permissions, you will see 'Admin' to the right of Maps in the top menu of the OLab4 player.
Choose Manage Users from the Admin drop-down menu
The user interface is better documented in the Entrada manual. This is what you will see initially.
We have improved this, taking an approach which is much more standard, and similar to how most LMS applications handle roles, courses, groups etc.
The user credentials, their groups and their roles within the group are set using Entrada. You have a number of Roles to choose from:
  • Admin -- the top level administrator. Can edit and control access to all OLab4 objects at all scope levels, including the global-level objects.
  • Superuser - Can edit and control access to all OLab4 objects at all scope levels, up to server-level.
  • Director -- Can edit and control access to all OLab4 objects at all scope levels, up to course-level
  • Author -- Can edit and control access to all OLab4 objects at all scope levels, up to map-level
  • Learner -- can play and list those maps and courses that are open to their group
  • Reviewer -- can play and annotate those maps and courses that are open to their group
More to be added as this is refined.
