Resource Properties

In order to customize the properties of a resource, the Admin or a normal user with permission can access the Edit properties window from the Edit properties button in Homepage or from the Save and the Save as buttons inside the resource viewer.

Through the Edit properties window the user can perform the following operations:

  • Add a Thumbnail

  • Add a Name and a Description

  • Add a Permission rule


The name of a resource is the only mandatory field. Note that is not allowed to choose a name that has already been assigned to another resource.


It is possible to add an image as thumbnail dropping it or clicking inside the following box:


The image to be added must not be larger than 500 kb and its best dimensions are 300x180 px. The supported formats are jpg (or jpeg) and png.

Permission rules

In the Add a rule... section you can set one ore more permission rules in order to allow a group to access the resource. In particular it is possible to choose between a particular group of authenticated users or the everyone group that includes all authenticated users but also anonymous users (more information about different user types can be found in Homepage section).
Moreover it is possible to choose between two different ways with which the selected group can approach the resource:

  • View the map and save a copy

  • Edit the map and re-save it

In order to add a rule, the user can select the group and set permissions inside the Add a rule... section. Once the rule is set, with the Add button it is possible to add it to the Permissions Groups list.
For example, a resource that can be seen by everyone, should have a rule like the following:

Once a rule is set, the user can always remove it through the Remove button .
