Assigning permissions

Permissions are granted to users by making them members of permission groups.

The Phycobank registry knows two types of users: Curator and Submitter. To enable a user to act as one of these different PermissionGroups need to be given:


  • Editor
  • Curation
  • Phycobank_Taxa


  • Submitter
  • Phycobank_Taxa
