Permissions in Ponydocs
User access to content and editorial tools
As discussed in the overview of objects in Ponydocs, a given version can be in one of three states: released, unreleased, or preview. The Splunk documentation uses these states in the following way:
- All Splunk employees are members of an 'employees' group in the MediaWiki user rights system, and can view and edit any product's documentation content in any version state.
- Docteam members are additionally members of groups granting per-product editorial privileges allowing them to branch and inherit content, as well as create and edit TOC files and manuals.
- (Non-employee) users can see any content that is tagged with at least one version that is in 'released' state. These users can be logged in to the site or not.
- Logged-in users can be made members of per-product 'preview' groups, granting them additional permissions to see content tagged with at least one version that is in 'preview' state.
You can create user groups in the MediaWiki user rights system to meet your organization's product- and user-specific requirements, and map them to access to the three version states.
