     4Trac uses a simple, case sensitive, permission system to control what users can and can't access.

    6 Permission privileges are managed using the [wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin] tool.
     6Permission privileges are managed using the [TracAdmin trac-admin] tool or (new in version 0.11) the ''General / Permissions'' panel in the ''Admin'' tab of the web interface.
     7
     8In addition to the default permission policy described in this page, it is possible to activate additional permission policies by enabling plugins and listing them in the `[trac] permission_policies` configuration entry in the TracIni. See TracFineGrainedPermissions for more details.
    79
    810Non-authenticated users accessing the system are assigned the name "anonymous". Assign permissions to the "anonymous" user to set privileges for anonymous/guest users. The parts of Trac that a user does not have the privileges for will not be displayed in the navigation.
     11In addition to these privileges, users can be granted additional individual rights in effect when authenticated and logged into the system. All logged in users belong to the virtual group "authenticated", which inherits permissions from "anonymous".

     13== Graphical Admin Tab ==
     14''This feature is new in version 0.11.''
     15
     16To access this tab, a user must have `TRAC_ADMIN privileges`. This can be performed as follows (more on the trac-admin script below):
     17{{{
     18  $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv permission add bob TRAC_ADMIN
     19}}}
     20
     21Then, the user `bob` will be able to see the Admin tab, and can then access the permissions menu. This menu will allow you to perform all the following actions, but from the browser without requiring root access to the server (just the correct permissions for your user account).
     22
     23
     24An easy way to quickly secure a new Trac install is to run the above command on the anonymous user, install the [http://trac-hacks.org/wiki/AccountManagerPlugin AccountManagerPlugin], create a new admin account graphically and then remove the TRAC_ADMIN permission from the anonymous user.
    1125
    1226== Available Privileges ==
    1327
    14 To enable all privileges for a user, use the `TRAC_ADMIN` permission. Having `TRAC_ADMIN` is like being `root` on a *NIX system, it will allow you perform any operation.

     112Or add all privileges:
     113{{{
     114  $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv permission add bob TRAC_ADMIN
     115}}}
     116
    83117== Permission Groups ==
     118
     119There are two built-in groups, "authenticated" and "anonymous".
     120Any user who has not logged in is automatically in the "anonymous" group.
     121Any user who has logged in is also in the "authenticated" group.
     122The "authenticated" group inherits permissions from the "anonymous" group.
     123For example, if the "anonymous" group has permission WIKI_MODIFY,
     124it is not necessary to add the WIKI_MODIFY permission to the "authenticated" group as well.
     125
     126Custom groups may be defined that inherit permissions from the two built-in groups.
    84127
    85128Permissions can be grouped together to form roles such as ''developer'', ''admin'', etc.
     
    92135}}}
    93136
    94 Group membership can be checked by doing a {{{permission list}}} with no further arguments; the resulting output will include group memberships. Use lowercase for group names, as uppercase is reserved for permissions.
     137Group membership can be checked by doing a {{{permission list}}} with no further arguments; the resulting output will include group memberships. '''Use at least one lowercase character in group names, as all-uppercase names are reserved for permissions'''.
     138
     139== Adding a New Group and Permissions ==
     140Permission groups can be created by assigning a user to a group you wish to create, then assign permissions to that group.
     141
     142The following will add ''bob'' to the new group called ''beta_testers'' and then will assign WIKI_ADMIN permissions to that group. (Thus, ''bob'' will inherit the WIKI_ADMIN permission)
     143{{{
     144   $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv permission add bob beta_testers
     145   $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv permission add beta_testers WIKI_ADMIN
     146
     147}}}
    95148
    96149== Removing Permissions ==
     
    107160You can also remove all privileges for a specific user:
    108161{{{
    109   $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv permission remove bob *
     162  $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv permission remove bob '*'
    110163}}}
    111164
    112165Or one privilege for all users:
    113166{{{
    114   $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv permission remove * REPORT_ADMIN
     167  $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv permission remove '*' REPORT_ADMIN
    115168}}}
    116169
    117170== Default Permissions ==
    118171
    119 Granting privileges to the special user ''anonymous'' can be used to control what an anonymous user can do before they have logged in.
     172By default on a new Trac installation, the `anonymous` user will have ''view'' access to everything in Trac, but will not be able to create or modify anything.
     173On the other hand, the `authenticated` users will have the permissions to ''create and modify tickets and wiki pages''.
    120174
    121 In the same way, privileges granted to the special user ''authenticated'' will apply to any authenticated (logged in) user.
