This is a port of the README file within the Workbench Module. It may need to be adapted to fit the Handbook style.
Workbench Access comes with six permissions:
- Administer Workbench Access settings
Allows users to configure Workbench Access access schemes and sections.
- Assign users to Workbench Access sections
Allows users to assign editors to sections. (Note that these editors must have the 'Allow all members of this role to be assigned to Workbench sections' permission described below.
- Allow all members of this role to be assigned to Workbench Access sections
Allows a user to be assigned as an editor of a section. This permission is used to check whether a user can access Workbench Access forms and features.
- Batch update section assignments for content
Allows a user to access the batch update form at admin/content. See section 5.4 for details.
- View Workbench Access information
Allows users to see information and messages related to Workbench Access, particularly section assignments of content pages. Useful for debugging and support.
- View taxonomy term pages for Workbench Access vocabulary
Workbench Access can create its own vocabulary for data storage. Typically, this vocabulary should not be shown to site visitors. This permission restricts access to taxonomy pages (taxonomy/term/%) defined by Workbench Access. Normal access to custom vocabularies is not affected. Only give this permission to roles that need to view these term pages, effectively treating them as standard taxonomy terms.
As a general rule, none of these permissions should ever be given to the anonymous user role.
Note that having the permission to become an editor does not automatically make a user an editor. Once the user has the permission, she must be assigned to sections in order to edit content. See the next section for details.
