Metadata to ACL Workflow Operation

ID: metadata-to-acl


The metadata-to-acl operation can be used to automatically add access rights for users mentioned in metadata fields to the access control list. Users are identified by their username. The operation works like this:

  1. Get values for configured field from the episode Dublin Core catalog.
  2. Look up if a user with this username exists
  3. Add read and write permissions for this user

Please consider carefully how you use this operation since this effectively means that anyone who can modify metadata can also modify access rights.
