Meridian PowerWeb security is based on default and system administrator-defined roles that can be applied to the folders of a vault. Each role defines the privileges of the members of the role. The members can be network domain groups, Meridian PowerWeb groups (preferred), or individual user accounts. The roles applied to a folder determine what actions the role’s members can perform on that folder and the documents it contains. Therefore, you might have more privileges in one folder than another folder.
Document security is also affected by the workflow status of a document. When a document is in the Under Change state, for example, only the owner of the document has the privileges to change the document. A document in the Review state can be reviewed and annotated by multiple users, but can not be edited by the reviewers in that state.
