After Annoto is enabled, the following is displayed:


Activate/Deactivate Pemissions Based on Users/Groups

To Authorize only specific users or groups to activate/deactivate Annoto

  1. Choose “Specific Users” in the activationEditAllowedRoles drop-down, and follow the following steps:
  2. After “Specific Users” is chosen a submenu is available for adding authorized users and/or groups.
  3. Click on “activationEditAllowedUsers” to add Users/Groups.
  4. Click on the “Select Users/Groups” to add Users/Groups to the list.

  5. Enter the user or group (when you start typing, autocomplete displays suggestions related to what you entered).

For example, here we can see Hen@annoto.net is currently the only one that can activate/deactivate Annoto, All other users will not have the option to Activate/Deactivate Annoto in Courses/Categories/Channels/Videos.

We suggest creating a Kaltura Users Group named for example “annoto_admins” and adding only this group to activationEditAllowedUsers list. For more information on groups see the article on Managing Groups from the MediaSpace or KAF Admin Console.
