This section describes facilities supposed to be used by advanced users.
Privileged users are users that own the global administration role (
ROLE_ADMIN) which grants them access
to all data and all functionality Opencast offers.
Unprivileged users are users that don't own the global administration role. For unprivileged users, Opencast offers two mechanisms to configure their privileges:
- Capture Agent Access Control can be used to configure the Admin UI to provide selective access to capture agents for different users or groups of users
- Role-Based Visibility can be used to configure the Admin UI to provide selective access to Opencast's functionality for different users or groups of users
