User Groups and Permissions
Only users in the Administrators group can manage user groups and permissions
Manage User Groups and Permissions
The Optipub user permissions management system is based on pre-defined user groups. Users added to a group inherit the permissions of that group. Any group can be modified to fit your needs. You can also create new groups and assign permissions to them.
User groups are meant to define permissions for a specific task or set of tasks. Users should be assigned to as many user groups as needed to accomplish their responsibilities.
Default User Groups
General User Group
New users are initially added only to the General user group by default.
User Groups Per Module
Below is a listing of all the default user groups. Depending on which modules you are subscribed to, you may not see all of the default user groups listed.

User groups have a pre-defined set of permissions. These permissions are grouped by API call. Every API call has a set of permission functions such as create, edit, update, and destroy.
The listed functions are fundamental to most permissions. There are more functions that are specific to one or a few permissions.
|create||create new instance|
|edit||modify existing instance|
|destroy||remove existing instance|
|store||save a newly created instance|
|update||save modifications to instance|
