How do I control access to Resources?

Control what content your users can and can't see through Team Access

The Team Type Access and Resource Status icons make it simple for administrators to quickly gauge and modify user access to Centercode resources.

IMPORTANT: The interactive nature of these icons is intended to make this the preferred method for removing access to a resource (as opposed to disabling the resource). This allows resources to be removed from public visibility while still being available in reporting, summaries, dashboards, etc.

Team Type Access Icons

Team Type Access Icons are interactive icons which are displayed on all Centercode resource administration pages (resource lists). These icons simplify the process of modifying resource access by allowing Administrators to click on them to quickly toggle access without navigating to the individual resource modification pages.

Team Type Access Icon Notes

  • Access Icons are available within a column in each resource type. These columns are named after the Role which they represent (whatever the primary "Submit" Role for that resource type).
  • Each Icon represents a single specific Team Type, with greater access on the left.
  • Team Types which may not access a Role (i.e. it is denied for that type) will not be included in the column.
  • Clicking the icon will toggle between two states: (1) Granting all Teams of that type access to the Role (filled green); and (2) Removing access from all Teams of that type to that Role (gray).

Resource Status Icons

Resource Status Icons summarize the status of a resource item (For example Content or a Task List), based on both it's Team Type access and it's current availability (Pending, Live, Expired, etc).

Resource Status Icon Notes

  • Status icons exist for all relevant resources (Content, Tasks, etc).
  • The filled nature of each bulb indicates the general type of user who has access to it.
  • Full bulbs are publicly accessible (meaning 1 or more Participants or Applicants have access)
  • Half-full bulbs are internally accessible (meaning 1 or more Administrators or Internal Teams have access).
  • Empty bulbs are not accessible by anyone (outside of the administrative interface).
