Storage Service 0.19 Release Notes
- Release date: TBD
- With the new permission module (see pull request #625 for more), existing users in the application database become administrators automatically. If you have Storage Service configured with an external authentication backend, you can use SS_AUTH_DEFAULT_USER_ROLE to establish a new default user role for authenticated users or tweak the authentication backend settings to map the user roles according to your needs.
Users can be associated to one of the following roles or permission sets: administrators, managers, reviewers and readers. Supported authentication backends like LDAP, Shibboleth or CAS include new configuration attributes to promote authenticated users.
