A data package can have 2 parts – the metadata, and the data. Right now, you
cannot set separate access permissions for those two parts. It would be useful
if you could set separate access permissions, and might encourage scientists to
include data in their data packages, instead of solely metadata.


#1 Updated by ben leinfelder over 13 years ago

with EML 2.1.0, access control can now be included for each dataset entity (not in additional metadata).
Morpho now edits those individual controls.

#2 Updated by ben leinfelder about 13 years ago

add references in the documentation on how to access this screen.
do not add it to the "New datapackage...." wizard, but make sure it's in the documentation both as a new section and also as a hint in the existing access control documentation section.

#3 Updated by ben leinfelder about 13 years ago

added to the user docs

#4 Updated by ben leinfelder almost 13 years ago

turned out this was only enabled for "editiable" data entities. now it is enabled for all entities

#5 Updated by ben leinfelder almost 13 years ago

reopening to address the "Same as Metadata" option for the data entities.
Using this additional radio button will delete any data-level access control rules that have been set and wil inherit from the parent datapackage.

#6 Updated by ben leinfelder almost 13 years ago

checked in changes to allow for "inheriting" ACLs from the metadata level.
will need to cut RC2 for this change to be seen in the release candidates.

#7 Updated by ben leinfelder over 12 years ago
