6.3. Permission templates

A permission template is a pre-defined set of permissions for users, groups and/or projects. The template makes it easy to quickly share items to multiple users, groups and projects, possible with different permissions for everyone. There are three major use-cases were permission templates are useful:

Permission templates are managed from the ViewPermission templates menu. The template is a very simple item that only has a name (required) and a description (optional). We recommend that the names of the templates are kept unique, but this is not enforced by BASE. To assign permissions to the template use the Set permissions button. This is the same dialog as the share dialog.

[Note] Permissions are copied

When a permission template is used the permissions are copied to the items. Modifications to the template that are made afterwards doesn't affect the permissions for the items on which the template was used.
