PermissionsThis comes from
With the ACS4 permissions model, the news administrator need no longer coincide with the site administrator. This need only be the case right after installation. The News application has a hierarchical set of permissions which can be assigned to any party as needed. The news root privilege is
news_create, news_delete, and news_read.
By default, the
news_adminpermission inherits from the site-wide admin. The
news_readpermission is assigned to the public so that all users, including non-registered users, have access to /news/. By default, the
news_createpermission is assigned to registered users. However, they can only submit a news items, but not approve it. Approval requires
news_adminprivilege or can be set to take place automatically by setting the parameter ApprovalPolicy to 'open'. The news privileges can be changed in /permissions/ by the administrator on the /news/admin/index page. The needs of an individual site, e.g. sharing the news administration duties among several individuals, are thus covered.
