After configuring Registry schemas, you can configure Registry and schema permissions for users, teams, and organizations to ensure everyone has appropriate access. This article explains how to:

Getting started

Registry-level permissions control who can view, access, and modify Registry configurations and settings.

Schema-level permissions provide granular control over how users interact with schema definitions and their objects. Schema access policies work with Registry and Project permissions to provide specific control over the information users have access to. At this time, schema access policies apply to entry and entity schemas.

Access Registry Settings

Permissions and access policies are both configured in your Registry Settings. To access your Registry Settings:

  1. Click your user avatar in the bottom-left corner of your tenant.

  2. In Feature Settings, select Registry Settings.

Tip: You can also access Registry Settings by clicking the Registry icon in the left-side menu, then clicking the gear icon to the right of the organization name.

Configure Registry and schema permissions

In Registry Settings, you can assign:

  • Overall Registry permissions in the General tab.

  • Schema-specific permissions by clicking Schema Access Policies.

If there are overlapping permissions or access policies assigned to users, teams, and/or organizations, Benchling allows the most permissive access policy to that user or user group.

To set permissions for a user, team, or organization:

  1. In the Manage collaborators search bar, enter the user, team, or organization you want to add, and select them from the list of options.

  2. Click Add collaborator. The user, team, or organization displays at the bottom of the Collaborators list.

  3. Select the collaborator’s permission level from the Permission drop-down menu, then click Update collaborators.

To view the default access policies for schema permissions, visit Schema permissions overview. To configure custom access policies for Registry permission levels, visit Configure access policies for complex permissions.

Note: You can only edit Registry permissions if your account has Registry Admin permissions. If you don’t have Registry Admin permissions, contact your Org Admin.
