Rights delegation

Since Ametys 3.1 version, a user can delegate its own rights to another user, insofar as he has the right to "Delegate rights".

This means a user can affect a profile to a user / group on a context, if he has himself this profile on this context.

For example :

  • the user "Webmaster user" has the profile "Webmaster" on sitemap context. It can affect this profile to another useror group on this same context.

  • the user "Webmaster user" has not the profile "Manager" on sitemap context. It can not affect this profile to another user on this same context.
