Managing Access Permissions


Users can change the access permissions of items such as feeds, sources, videos, and sessions. Access permissions are defined on the Library's Access pane (by clicking the Access tab from the Information pane when adding or editing an item). You can specify access permissions on a per-user or per-group basis. 

For information on the default permissions and the steps to change the access permissions of feeds, sources, videos, and sessions, see Sharing Items (in the User's Guide).

Administrators and other users may assign users access permissions for content rights (videos, sessions, sources, and feeds). Access permissions are combined with a user's role and may further qualify the user's privileges.

Permission needs to be granted on both the role AND access level in order for a user to have access. Basically, a user's role and access permission must match for the user to be able to do something.

When setting up Haivision Media Platform, administrators can create custom access permissions. HMP provides the default access permissions shown below.


Depending on the Use Feed Permission setting, after an asset is selected for a feed, the feed access permissions take precedence over the permissions assigned to the asset. This means users may have access through feeds to assets that they would not have access to otherwise. For more information, see Configuring Feeds and Activating the Portal.
