It is possible to allow user registration on one or more Phraseanet collections using a form accessible from the homepage of the application.
The registration process is like many other applications. Users fill and submits a registration form that gives him access to the application and its resources.
The registration is either automatic or goes through an administrator that will check every registration demands.
By default, the subscriptions are manual. When a user submits a registration form, functional administrators receive a notification (on the screen and/or by email) indicating a new access request. They check in the Admin section that the registration is legitimate then either validate or reject a subscription application by granting user rights or not. The users that subscribed are then notified of the decision on their application
Refer to this page dedicated section on access requests.
Automatic subscription allows user to request access which is automatically granted.
It is a choice for each instance and depending on the project, a strategy is better than the other.
To activate the automatic subscription...
To enable registration on collections insert a XML tag in the collection settings. With Manage value list right applied...
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <baseprefs> <caninscript>1</caninscript> <sugestedValues/> </baseprefs>
A Subscription link is then available on the homepage of Phraseanet.
The administrators can give users a choice of collections on which they can register.
This parameter will activate or de-activate the selection of Phraseanet bases and collections on which a user can subscribes. If the option is de-activated, the subscription is made on all the available bases and collections featuring the Caninscript XML tag.
