What is the Role of Reviewer Group? Can't we add individual person as doc Admin or Author?

    Hi, I would like to refresh this topic as I am having similar problems with the reviewer functionality in Scroll Versions.

    1. In the role assignment section of Scroll Versions configuration it says: "The group(s) documentation-reviewers in the reviewer list have 'Add Page' permission in this space, which means they can edit the currently published version of all pages." What I understood from this is that adding the group will automatically give the users in this group appropriate permissions but this was not the case. I had to manually add this group again to space permissions and adjust the settings.

    2. Then, under the Reviewers box on the same configuration screen, it says: "Reviewers are read-only users, that cannot edit page versions other than the currently published version." I don't understand why reviewers would only edit currently published version. If I am working on, e.g. version 4, I created a new page and want someone to review it (by editing it) before it is published, I cannot do it.

     

    Or am I getting it all wrong?

     

    Thank you in advance for all your help.

    Hi Sabina,

    the Scroll Versions roles are based on the standard Confluence permissions, so you have to make sure that users assigned to the corresponding Scroll Versions roles have "create page" and edit page restrictions for the versioned space.

    The reviewer role was thought to be someone reading a specific version and uses the comment functionality to provide feedback (even more useful with the upcoming Confluence 5.7 with inline comments functionality).

    We are currently discussing how to deal with permissions and will be reviewing the whole concept when planning the next releases of Scroll Versions.

    I'd suggest to use the "Private Master Space" approach (https://www.k15t.com/display/VSN/Public+vs.+Private+Master+Space), so you won't have content in the currently published version in your master space where reviewers would be able to edit.

    Does that help?

    Best,Nils
