Access management
Authors maintaining resources might need to restrict the accessibility of those. Snowray provides different types of roles to define which user is allowed to perform an action or to see a specific resource. Besides specifying roles for individual users, it is also possible to determine groups of users with associated roles. A more detailed description of user role permissions can be found below.

Administrators can share resources, edit individual user or group roles, and revoke access to resources after visiting the Sharing tab of the selected resource. More can be found on these topics under the following pages:
Resources only appear for users who are granted access to them, including administrator users.
User roles are restricted to resources. A user can have different types of permissions to different resources and can have multiple roles if they are present in a group with permission to the resource as well.
When having multiple roles, the role with the higher accessibility feature will always be the one taken into consideration when trying to access a resource.
