[LON-CAPA-dev] A line from the guts manual about roles
Wed, 23 Jul 2003 13:49:35 -0500
"When a user first logs in, their role is the 'common' role, which means
that they have the sum of all of their privileges. During a session it
might become necessary to choose a particular role, which as a
consequence also limits the user to only the privileges in that
Is this still true? It doesn't make much sense to me as written; why
would anyone want to limit their privileges, and why would "limiting"
privileges be necessary to do something?
I don't know what this was getting at. It came from SessionOn1.html,
near the end.
