Introduction
It is possible to create a 'special' user with a so-called 'special' authorisation. Third parties (e.g. customers or teachers) can be given limited access to study programmes, the resulting study programmes and documents. Restricted means: only pre-defined course definition, courses and documents may be viewed/changed.

Granting special authorisation to course definition/ courses:
Preparation:
  1. Create one or more course definition categories. Provide a name that makes it clear that the course definition can only be viewed/changed by this special user.
  2. For each course definition that can be viewed/changed, the category must be added.
  3. Create a user and make sure they are financially authorized.
Open the user's file via the function group 'Administration' and the function 'User'.
Click on the tab 'Additional authorisation'.
Click on the 'Edit' button and select the course definition categories by which you want to filter..


Click on the button 'Save' or 'Save & Back'.

Grant special authorization to documents/actions:
Change the read and write permissions of the document and action templates. If the special user is only allowed to view documents/actions, the user roles assigned to this user must be linked to the read access rights.

Note: this applies to 'all' users to whom these user roles have been assigned. If there are users who are allowed to change documents/actions, the user roles of these users must be linked to the write permissions.
