As I said in my other post I’m currently evaluation Omeka for a group trying to determine if it will meet all of their needs. One need they have is the ability to have multiple collections and then lock user roles down per collection.
So let’s say they have two collections A and B they want to:
- Give user XX the right to view private items in collection A, as well as the ability to edit and update them.
- Give user YY the right to view private items in collection B, as well as the ability to edit and update them.
- Make it so that user XX cannot view or edit private items in collection B.
- Make it so that user YY cannot view or edit private items in collection A.
What the group is looking for seems to be a combination of these two topics from the legacy forums:
Does anyone know if there have been any updates to Omeka that make something like this possible? Or any plugins that have been created to do so?
The suggestion that I read was to create a plugin based off of the Guest User plugin. Does anyone know how feasible that is? Would it make updating or upgrading in the future more difficult?
Any ideas or thoughts would be appreciated.
