There are two permission types that relate to relationships in Academic Scheduling: Role Based Access Control (RBAC) and Field-Level Permissions. These two types of permissions impact a user’s ability to view, add, edit, and delete relationships in different places..
RBAC & Relationships
The Role Based Access Control (RBAC) permissions for relationships affect the ability to view, add, and edit/delete relationships at Academic Scheduling > Relationships.
If the “Edit Relationships” permission is set to “Allow”, this also gives the role the ability to delete relationships.
These permissions are set to “allow” or “deny” by an admin at Academic Scheduling > Settings > Roles > Relationships.
All Three Permissions Set to “Allow”
If all three relationships permissions are all set to "Allow", the user will be able to view, add, and edit/delete relationships at Academic Scheduling > Relationships.
View & Add Relationships
“View” Permissions Set to “Deny”
If the Relationships "View" permission is set to "Deny", the user will see a note that indicates they cannot view relationships.
“View” = “Allow” but “Add” and “Edit” = Deny
If the “View Relationships” permission is set to "Allow", but “Add Relationships” and “Edit Relationships” are both set to "Deny", they will no longer see the “+ Add Relationship” button, and the “Edit Relationship” modal will not pop up if they try to open the relationship.
Field-Level Permissions & Relationships
Field-level permissions impact a user’s ability to add, edit, and delete relationships within the Section Editor, located at Academic Scheduling > Section Editor > (Locate Section) > (Hover over section number) > Section Editor.
This ability is configured in the Section Template, located at Academic Scheduling > Settings > Field Options > Section Template > (Locate Relationships Card) > Advanced Settings.
If the field settings are set to be editable for that user’s role and the selected term, the user will be able to edit Relationships directly within the Section Editor as shown below.
