Feature library permissions

  • Updated

Feature libraries are a repository of sequences that can be used to automatically annotate features across multiple sequences with the same name, color, and type. A feature library can be owned by the organization or a user. Users can only view or edit libraries they have permission to access. There are three default access policies that can be applied to feature libraries:

  • Read - Users can view the feature library and use it to annotate sequences. However, they cannot add and/or remove annotations from the library or update its collaborators.
  • Write - Users can add and/or remove annotations and use it to annotate sequences. However, they cannot rename or delete the library, or update its collaborators.
  • Admin - Users can add and/or remove annotations, annotate sequences, rename or delete the library, and update its collaborators.
