Library Access Control
With the property sets access control feature, project admins can define the access level for each property set in the library for each user group separately. The new access control permissions model replaces the previous one with new access levels.
Access control settings are applied to Connect User Groups. If you haven’t already set up Groups yet, click the Connect Groups link, where you will be taken to your project’s Team page.
Read only access
Using the Access Control Manager
The Access Control Manager panel is organized into a grid view where there is:
One column for each property set in the library
One row for each user group to which access control has been applied.
Access Control Levels and Descriptions
Edit access means that members of the user group can add the property set to model objects and edit the property set values in the Connect 3D Viewer.
Read Only Access
Read only access means that members of the user group can only see the property sets that have been added to model objects but they cannot edit the property values.
No access means that the property set is hidden from the members of the user group in the Connect 3D Viewer.
The default library access is a general rule that you can easily define access control for all the project members in your project (current and future).
Overriding the Library Access
Because the property sets inherit their access control from the library level, it is not possible to define a policy where a Group would have Read Only or Edit Access for a particular Property Set while having No Access to the Library.
Updating the Permission Model
In order to use the Access Control feature, the property set library must be using the supported permissions model. Property set libraries created before April of 2020 or outside of the 3D Viewer may have incompatible Access Control Policies.
After the new permission model has been applied, all project admins in the project will be able to see and edit the library.
Navigate to the Property Set Libraries page from Trimble Connect for Browser's 3D Viewer.
Click on a library listed in the table to go into the Editor.
Click Manage access control button.
A message about the new permission model is displayed.
Click Use new permissions model.
The Access Control Manager panel is displayed.
Click Save. A draft of the permissions is saved and the Access Control Manager panel closes.
Click Publish to apply the changes.
Note: If you do not publish the library, then all changes will be discarded (including updating the policy) when you navigate away from the page.
