Permissions

Last updated 7 months ago

This is the overview page about our recent revision and deployment of our Permissions model.

As of May 2018, Ilios now contains our completely refactored permissions model, which replaces and enhances the permissions tools and role assignments previously available in Ilios. This shift impacts how users are able to interact with Ilios data as administrators. WHAT THIS MEANS Your administrative users have permissions to edit only the areas to which they have been explicitly associated in the system's hierarchy. Every school, program year, course, and session (as well as Curriculum Inventory reports) now has a section for the addition of Directors and Administrators, which assigns them the appropriate usage permissions for a user at that level (as seen in the new permissions matrix here). Instructors assigned to individual teaching activities automatically receive administrative permissions for that activity, regardless of other assignments in the system.

Setting Permissions

Each section where Permissions can be modified will be covered in detail in the section of the User Guide that pertains to that aspect of Ilios.
