     1= Trac Permissions =
     2[[TracGuideToc]]
     3
     4Trac uses a simple, case sensitive, permission system to control what users can and can't access.
     5
     6Permission privileges are managed using the [TracAdmin trac-admin] tool or the ''General / Permissions'' panel in the ''Admin'' web interface.
     7
     8In addition to the default permission policy described in this page, it is possible to activate additional permission policies by enabling plugins and listing them in the `[trac] permission_policies` configuration entry in the TracIni. See TracFineGrainedPermissions for more details.
     9
     10Non-authenticated users accessing the system are assigned the name "anonymous". Assign permissions to the "anonymous" user to set privileges for anonymous/guest users. The parts of Trac that a user does not have the privileges for will not be displayed in the navigation.
     11In addition to these privileges, users can be granted additional individual rights in effect when authenticated and logged into the system. All logged in users belong to the virtual group "authenticated", which inherits permissions from "anonymous".
     12
     13== Available Privileges ==
     14
     15To enable all privileges for a user, use the `TRAC_ADMIN` permission. Having `TRAC_ADMIN` is like being `root` on a *NIX system: it will allow you to perform any operation.
     16
     17Otherwise, individual privileges can be assigned to users for the various different functional areas of Trac ('''note that the privilege names are case-sensitive'''):

     77
     78== Granting Privileges ==
     79
     80You grant privileges to users using [wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin]. The current set of privileges can be listed with the following command:
     81{{{
     82  $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv permission list
     83}}}
     84
     85This command will allow the user ''bob'' to delete reports:
     86{{{
     87  $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv permission add bob REPORT_DELETE
     88}}}
     89
     90The `permission add` command also accepts multiple privilege names:
     91{{{
     92  $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv permission add bob REPORT_DELETE WIKI_CREATE
     93}}}
     94
     95Or add all privileges:
     96{{{
     97  $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv permission add bob TRAC_ADMIN
     98}}}
     99
     100== Permission Groups ==
     101
     102There are two built-in groups, "authenticated" and "anonymous".[[BR]]
     103Any user who has not logged in is automatically in the "anonymous" group.[[BR]]
     104Any user who has logged in is also in the "authenticated" group.[[BR]]
     105The "authenticated" group inherits permissions from the "anonymous" group.[[BR]]
     106eg. if the "anonymous" group has permission WIKI_MODIFY, it's not necessary to add the WIKI_MODIFY permisison to the "authenticated" group as well.
     107
     108Custom groups may be defined that inherit permissions from the two built-in groups.
     109
     110Permissions can be grouped together to form roles such as ''developer'', ''admin'', etc.
     111{{{
     112  $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv permission add developer WIKI_ADMIN
     113  $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv permission add developer REPORT_ADMIN
     114  $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv permission add developer TICKET_MODIFY
     115  $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv permission add bob developer
     116  $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv permission add john developer
     117}}}
     118
     119Group membership can be checked by doing a {{{permission list}}} with no further arguments; the resulting output will include group memberships. '''Use lowercase for group names, as uppercase is reserved for permissions'''.
     120
     121== Adding a New Group and Permissions ==
     122Permission groups can be created by assigning a user to a group you wish to create, then assign permissions to that group.
     123
     124The following will add ''bob'' to the new group called ''beta_testers'' and then will assign WIKI_ADMIN permissions to that group. (Thus, ''bob'' will inherit the WIKI_ADMIN permission)
     125{{{
     126   $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv permission add bob beta_testers
     127   $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv permission add beta_testers WIKI_ADMIN
     128
     129}}}
     130
     131== Removing Permissions ==
     132
     133Permissions can be removed using the 'remove' command. For example:
     134
     135This command will prevent the user ''bob'' from deleting reports:
     136{{{
     137  $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv permission remove bob REPORT_DELETE
     138}}}
     139
     140Just like `permission add`, this command accepts multiple privilege names.
     141
     142You can also remove all privileges for a specific user:
     143{{{
     144  $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv permission remove bob '*'
     145}}}
     146
     147Or one privilege for all users:
     148{{{
     149  $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv permission remove '*' REPORT_ADMIN
     150}}}
     151
     152== Default Permissions ==
     153
     154By default on a new Trac installation, the `anonymous` user will have ''view'' access to everything in Trac, but will not be able to create or modify anything.
     155On the other hand, the `authenticated` users will have the permissions to ''create and modify tickets and wiki pages''.
