Permission to update a given cards is based on its *update rules. A new Wagn comes with several update rules, including these two:
By "Layout cards", we mean cards that have the type "Layout". Since the set of "Layout cards" is narrower than the set of "all cards", the second rule overrides the first, and only Administrators are permitted to edit Layout cards.
NOTE: This documentation is focused on card rules, meaning rules that are set in card content. Software developers can also add code rules via Mod.
The first part of working with rules is knowing how to access them . You can navigate to a rule from...
If you navigate to rules via the menu (#1 above), you will see a set of rules that looks something like the following:
view (options) not supported for roadmap
You can click on any setting (create, read, update, etc) to open that setting. If you have update permission on the rule (which most wagn.org users don't), you will go straight to an edit view that will prompt you to edit the content of the rule and to choose the set to which it applies.
The basic formula for the name of a rule card is Set+Setting.
For example, the default permission for who can read cards is set with this permission rule:
This follows the Set+Setting=Rule pattern as follows:
The "Example" section should be less concerned with explaining how rules are named and more concerned with helping users understand how to interact with them. Most beginning Wagneers should not have to learn about how rules are named. (but that should be explained at the bottom of the How To section)
