Digital Signage, Users, Groups, and Setting Permissions

This article provides information about how access and rights can be set within the Digital Signage Services environment.

In organizations with large numbers of signs, sub-organizations, and/or content managers it is sometimes desirable to control access and rights to locations, content, or templates based on the user of the system. In the context of our Digital Signage Services, this responsibility falls to the primary digital signage manager or coordinator in each major unit who will need to contact the service at and work with the service manager directly.

Permissions in the system are set through the Security tab which requires administrator access become visible. While departments will be able to create AD Security Groups of their own to control access and right, it will require administrator access to add the security groups into the system and to use them to set permissions for Locations, Content and Content Categories, Templates and Template Categories, etc. The service manager will advise and work with you to set permissions up for your organization. 

The following tables describe the security settings available for the most common signage objects:
