Motivation

Collections have access control lists that determine what operations a user can perform. The entries in the list either corresponds to a specific user or to an entire group.

Vidispine uses the access controls on the collection to determine if a user has access to perform a specific operation or not.

All collections will have a OWNER access control that identifies the user that created the entity, and that grants full access to it.

Example
