Subject: [Dspace-tech] Authorizations and display of items
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
Please advise me if I should be posting this on the general list.
I am trying to understand how the authorizations work. I have created two
communities each with collections. I have removed < anonymous read >
privileges to all collections, because a login is required to see the items.
I understand that removing anonymous read privileges are not retroactive.
Here is what is happening:
When I access the database, without logging in:
I see the communities listed.
If I click on "Communities and Collections", I see the list of collections.
If I click on any of them, it is restricted - I am asked to login. Good so
If I click on "by issue date", or "title", etc., I see the list of titles.
If I click on a title, it is restricted and I am asked for a login.
My question is: Why am I seeing the titles? If my collection is
restricted, people should not be seeing any part of the collection. I even
wonder if the list of communities and collections should display. Is this
the way the database works, or am I doing something wrong?
