Toolsets and Toolgroups

Before a user will see a tool in the front end you need to set up assign access to it using Toolsets and Toolgroups.


Adding toolsets allows grouping of users to determine which tools they have access to. We typically have an allusers set, a dev set and maybe a testing set. On top of that we might have sets for individual research groups etc.

Grouping like this also means that if we are running a licenced tool, we can assign it only to groups of users who are included in the licence.


Toolsgroups determine how tools are grouped in the user interface. The groups that you add here will be reflected in the menu on the left of user interface.

NB: If a user has access to a tool more than once through a couple of toolsets, they will only see the tool once in the front end.
