Burst Security (6.2.1 and beyond)

Beginning in Release 6.2.1, there is a new Create Burst Privilege that can be granted to Groups as well as to Power/Regular Users.  In addition, Power Users can receive Extended Security to allow them to subscribe or  grant Burst Edit Access or to any Group or User.

Without the Privilege, a Regular or Power User cannot create or edit a Burst.  

With the Privilege, a user can

  • Create the Burst
  • Receive Edit Access to this Burst
  • Designate Subscribers
  • Power Users can grant Permission to other Power Users to Edit the Bursts

Bursts have both:

  1. Subscribers: users who receives the Burst but do not need the Privilege in order to receive
  2. Permissions: Additional Power Users who are allowed  to edit the Burst (in addition to all Admins) who also have the Privilege to Create Bursts
  3. Same security is applied to both of the above; i.e., the list of available Groups or Users is the same for both actions
    1. The list of Groups and Users is limited to:  Groups to which the user belongs and members of those groups and, for Power Users only, Groups to which the Power User has Edit Access
    2. With the Extended Security, a Power User sees all Groups and Users for when Subscribing granting Permissions
