ftrack operates a role-based security and permission system. Security roles can be assigned to users globally, on all open projects, or per project.
When you first use ftrack, you will find several security roles already set up. You can change existing security roles or create new ones, and set which role should be the default for new users.
For custom attributes that you have configured, there are separate read and write permissions for each security role.
Private project restrict users’ access to a project. When creating a project, you can decide if it is a private project or open. If it is private, only users with explicit access will be able to see it.
You do not have to be an administrator to change access to a project. A permitted user can do so from inside the project.
