Permissions and Site Hierarchy
All groups/sites added to the system are added within a hierarchy. This is done for several reasons:
- To organize the sites based on where they are in the university, and to style them appropriately based on that location.
- To allow global web admins permission to all sites in the system
The top level of the hierarchy is a group called "Global Web Admins". It is not a subgroup of any other group.
Underneath this group, there are five groups at the same level:
- University Level Sites
- Evening Weekend Online
All other sites will be assigned to one of the five groups above, depending on where the department falls. These sites will gather their display/theming information from whichever parent group they are a part of.
