A couple of questions about user management, one localized, the other perhaps more general.
We're experiencing configuration problems on our production server and aren't sure how to resolve them. One critical issue is that we no longer have access to the "Manage Users" function on the dashboard. The box has simply vanished for all users, including dataverseAdmin. Is it possible that our system admin inadvertantly turned off the user management functionality when configuring our server? If so, is there a way to turn it back on?
On a more general note, we are looking for ways to circumscribe user privileges for our root dataverse and for all sub-dataverses. The reason is that it has been decided that AUSSDA will not function as a fully open access repository and will require users to register and authenticate in order to download most of our data sets. Also, users will not be allowed to create sub-dataverses (our staff will do it for them) or change user privileges in sub-dataverses. All data uploads will be "guided", which means that our staff will actually do the uploading for our users. I understand that it is possible to set user privileges for each user and dataverse, but is there a way to restrict access globally such that it cascades to all sub-dataverses, like a kind of inheritance?
Thanks for the help. Best, Frank
