Allow Users to Create Collections

Last modified: May 17, 2021

Curators (Gallery Admins) have to give users permission to create collections. In Galleries that use built-in authentication, you can enable the Can Create Collections permission when creating a new user.

If you allow users to register in a built-in authentication Gallery or are using windows or SAML authentication, follow these steps to enable this permission once users have registered their Gallery account. 

  1. Go to the User Management page in the Gallery Admin interface.
  2. Select the user. 
  3. In the Actions panel, select Yes for Create Collections permission. 
    In the Actions panel toggle the Create Collections permission to Yes. 

The create collections permission was new in version 2019.4. If you upgrade from Server version 2019.3 or earlier to version 2019.4+, this permission is enabled by default for Curators and Artisans created before 2019.4. This prevents unexpected changes to users' ability to create collections. If you want to remove a user's ability to create collections, turn off the Create Collections permission.
