Changing the Map Permissions
In the Map Information section of this guide we said that you can see your maps and all the published maps. In MapStand HUB the permissions management system is more complex. Administrators can choose who can do what for each map. Users can manage only the maps they own or the maps which they are authorize to manage.
By default only owners can edit and manage maps, anyone can view and download them.
In order to modify the Map Permissions settings you have to click the Change Permissions of this Map button on the Map Page.
Through the Permissions Settings Panel you can add or remove permissions for users and groups. The picture below shows an example.
You can set the following types of permissions:
Who can View it? allows to view the map;
Who can Download it? allows to download the map;
Who can Change Metadata for it? allows to change the map metadata;
Who can Manage it? allows to update, delete, change permissions, publish and unpublish the map.
Warning: When assigning permissions to a group, all the group members will have those permissions. Be careful in case of editing permissions.
Click on Apply Changes to save these settings.
