    Question

    Access Rights: viewing digital objects from Primo – who is allowed and who is restricted?

    Answer

    Access Rights: viewing digital objects from Primo – who is allowed and who is restricted.

    • Digital object has no access right rule connected

    Customer Parameter access_right_default_policy (Accessed by Implementation/Support only) is taken into consideration
    Values: Restrict/Allow
    Restrict => All the users are not allowed to deliver the object
    Allow => All the users are allowed to deliver the object
    • Digital object is connected to an Access Right

    The Access Right is taken into consideration.
    Access Right explanation
    Fulfillment Configuration > Digital Fulfillment > Access Rights > Choose an Access Right > Access Rights Rules tab
    Logic
    Alma checks each rule and allows/restricts an object by the rule parameters. If a user does no meets any criteria, Alma allows/restricts by the Default Rule
    o Access Right Rule
    a. Input Parameters
    b. Output parameters = Allow/Restrict

    According the Input Parameters, a user will see an object (if output parameter = allow) or will not see it (if output parameter = restrict)

    o Default Access Right Rule
    Values: Allow/Restrict

    If a user who attempts to view an object does not meet any rules’ criteria, Alma will restrict or allow an object from viewing according to the Default Rule.
