Assigning access rights

You can easily set up PhraseExpander Enterprise to give either read-only access or admin access to shared glossaries.

All you have to do is set the proper file system access rights to the shared folder containing the glossaries you want to share.

When linking to a read-only glossary, a lock icon is displayed near each template. The user will not be able to make any changes.

How to set up access rights

The user access right setting is done by setting the file system privileges.

PhraseExpander verifies if the user has read-only access or full access to the glossary by checking the folder containing the shared glossary every 30 seconds.

NOTE: Make sure you assign the access privileges to the folder that contains the glossary (not at the specific glossary) or the read-only status might not be detected.

Limitations of read-only users

If the user doesn't have write access to the folder containing the linked glossary, PhraseExpander will display the shared glossary in locked mode.

This means that:

  1. The interface is locked and the user is not able to make changes to the glossary or its contents
  2. He's still able to get remote changes
  3. The user cannot unlink from the linked glossary
  4. You can set up PhraseExpander to automatically update read-only users
NOTE: this functionality is available only in PhraseExpander Enterprise.
