User terminology and general roles & permissions
This article applies to BOOST EMPOWER licenses
Purpose of the article
This article details the terminology used within Cooperlink to distinguish between different types of users.
|User (internal)||Person||The user defines an internal collaborator who is assigned a Cooperlink DELIVER and/or BOOST license. A user is automatically connected to the company's tools through the connectors.|
|Group||Person||The group brings together several users.|
It assigns them a level of permission common to the whole. It is also used to simplify the addition of a group of people in projects (e.g. pole, department, ...).
|Partner||Enterprise||Partner defines a partner company with a Cooperlink GUEST (free), EMPOWER or BOOST license|
For more information, see Collaboration schemes and use cases
|Contact||Person||The contact defines the employee of a partner company.|
It is the contact that will be the subject of an invitation within a workspace.
|Business card||Person or Company||The business card defines the contact details of a professional relationship. Contrarily to a contact, the business card cannot be invited in Cooperlink. It can, however, be used to create a new contact or partner.|
|System User||Technical||The system user is used by the connectors for all automatic operations. This user is not accessible and is transparent to end users.|
General roles and permissions for users (internal)
There are 3 types of (internal) users:
|User Type||Applies to||Description|
|Basic user||User, Group||Basic users have access to the app and spaces based on an invitation|
|Project Manager||User, Group||Project managers have the same rights as a basic user + the ability to create new spaces|
|Site administrator||User, Group||The site administrator has full access to the application configuration|
To assign a user the role of manager and administrator, it is necessary to add this user in two groups with different rights.
