Registration State Settings - Visibility and Locked legend Permissions

Visibility and Locked legend

Visibility Legend- The visibility settings let you choose who can see the content endorsed by the Registration Authority. The five visibility settings options are:

  1. Registration Authority Only: Only registrars and managers in this Registration Authority can see metadata registered with this visibility level. This is a more restrictive level of visibility that overrides the default visibility behavior.

  2. Workgroup: Members of Workgroups that metadata items belong to can see registration status information at this level.

  3. Steward Organisation: Members of the Stewardship Organisation that this Registration Authority belongs to is in can view registration information, and can see metadata registered with these statuses.

  4. Authenticated users: All authenticated users in the Registry can see items registered with this visibility level.

  5. Public: Anyone who can view the registry can see items registered with a status with this visibility level. Users do not log in to see this information.

Locked Legend- Using this setting, Registration Authority statuses can be locked and unlocked for editing permissions.

  1. Locked: When an item is registered as a locked item:

    • Stewards of the workgroup the item is in can edit the item.

    • Stewards of the steward organisation the item is in can edit the item.

    • Admins and superusers can edit it.

  2. Unlocked: all items registered with a status that is unlocked can be edited by users that have permission to edit the item.
