Access to resources in Skyportal is controlled in two ways:
Roles are sets of site-wide permissions (ACLs) that allow a user to perform certain actions: e.g, create a new user, upload spectra, post comments, etc.
Groups are sets of sources that are accessible to members of that group
Members can also be made an admin of the group, which gives them group-specific permissions to add new users, etc.
The same source source can belong to multiple groups
Adding roles to users¶
User permissions can be managed on the
/users/page (click through from profile)
Adding users to groups¶
Groups membership can be managed on the
/groups/page (click through from profile)
