This article provides an introduction to managing permissions for 'Spaces' in Jive and leads to related articles while presenting an overview of the core steps.
Spaces are places where users can post content such as documents, discussions, and blog posts. You can assign users or user groups a variety of permissions to control their level of access to a 'Space'.
Space permissions have various levels and customization options. For more information, see Space Permission Levels. Please note that projects and sub-spaces inherit the permissions of their parent space. 'Social Groups', however, are independent of spaces.
At a high level, setting up space permissions typically includes:
- Creating user groups that capture how you want to grant access to the community's features. For more information, see Using User Groups for Assigning Permissions. For information specific to spaces, please see Setting up Space Permissions for User Groups.
- Setting the default space permissions. These should represent the access you most commonly want to provide for new spaces in the community.
- As you add spaces, deciding how to handle setting permissions for each. When someone creates a space, their options typically are:
- Inherit from the parent space.
- Start with the parent space's permissions, then customize.
- Start with the default space's permissions, then customize.
- Start from scratch (no permissions assigned), then customize.
