5. Permissions

Permissions are managed through the Django admin site, which is separate from the main Ferda user interface, and can be accessed on the /admin path.

A user with access to the admin site must be given the Staff status and can be designated to have all permissions implicitly with the Superuser status.

User management permissions:

  • Can view user

  • Can add user

  • Can change user

  • Can delete user

Registry management permissions:

  • Can view basic registry content – required to display any information from the Registry

  • Can view AuthInfo – required to display the authorization information (AuthInfo)

  • Can view registrar credit

You may create groups of these permissions and assign them to users.

5.1. Users and groups example

This example describes a model situation where we have two groups of permissions: one for customer support team workers and another for customer support team managers.


  • a Customer Support Lead group might have all Registry management permissions

  • a Customer Support Worker group might have only the permission Can view basic registry content


  • users of customer support who require only basic permissions would be assigned the Customer Support Worker group

  • a user of a customer support manager who requires extended permissions, would be assigned the Customer Support Lead group
