  4. Permissions


Elevator contains a robust permission system, which can be a bit overwhelming.

Permissions can be set on Instances, Collections, and Drawers.  Collection permissions can only be more permissive than instances – IE, an instance may be set to not allow downloads, but a specific collection can override that setting.

Setting permissions on drawers, instances and collections is done in the same way, via a similar interface.

Additional documents are below.  We also have two screencasts describing the most common permissions-related tasks.
