Rights (Object)

Starting with a scope, you can obtain the "rights" object. It includes a vast amount of information on the scope and the data you can access and manipulate:

  • Scope information: Print title, Hyperlink to job/project/resource/global search pages, etc.
  • Information on languages: For example, the source and target language of a job.
  • Information on documents: Does the scope have source/target documents. How many?
  • General access rights: Can you edit segments? Can you add or delete segments? Can you lock/unlock segments? And so on.
  • Configuration details: Available custom fields and labels.


Note: You do not need to fetch this object in order to call API methods since each API method will validate the access rights related to the scope.


PROPERTIES

The JSON object has these properties:


scope

The scope object. It delimits the total range of segments and related resources that can be accessed.

Example of a "job" scope:

CODE
{
    "type": "Job",
    "jobid": 9927,
    "jobcdyt": true
}
object
properties

Additional information on the scope, such as title and hyperlinks:

  • name: The print name of the scope type. For example: "Project", "Job"...
  • title: The print title of the scope: A project reference, a job reference, a resource name and so on.
  • url: A hyperlink to access the Wordbee Translator page for the scope. For example, the project details page, the job details page, the global search page and so on.
  • parent: With "Resource" scopes only. See chapter in Scope (Object)

  • status: A numeric status code. Used with Project and Job scopes only - otherwise null.
  • statust: The status name.
  • statusc: The status HTML color.


Additional properties as a function of scope type:

Project scope

  • dsid: The resource ID that contains the segments of the scope.
  • status: The numeric project status
  • statust: The status title such as "Completed", "In progress", etc.
  • statusc: An HTML color for the status.

Job scope

  • dsid: The resource ID that contains the segments of the scope.
  • task: The task code such as TR, RV or PROOF
  • taskt: The task title such as "Translation"
  • srconly: A boolean. If true then the job is for work on the source language only.
  • status: The numeric job status. See possible values here: Job Status
  • statust: The status title such as "Completed", "In progress", etc.
  • statusc: An HTML color for the status.
  • pid: The project id.
  • pname: The project reference.
  • branchLocale: The branch locale. Typically the target language except in workflows where there are intermediary workflow steps from/into other languages (example: back translation workflows)

Global Search scope

  • canSearchAllResources: Boolean. True if the user can search all resources. False if the user can search only those resources assigned to user's company.
  • canSearchProjectMemories: Boolean. True if user can search project memories. False if user can only search translation memories and term bases.


Project, Job, Resource scopes

  • cty: Type of resource: 1 = Project memory resource, 2 = Translation memory, 3 = Terminology database  


object

hasFiles

True if the scope has documents (source files and translated files). It is true for "Project" and "Job" scopes only.

bool
hasSingleFileTrue if the scope has documents and there is just a single source file. For example, with Codyt jobs this property will always be true.bool
locales

An array of all locales (languages) available in the scope and for the user. Each item has these properties:

  • loc: The language code aka locale
  • name: The language name
  • issrc: True if the language is a source language. Note that there can be multiple source languages (e.g. in resources).
  • istrg: True if the language is a target language. Note that a language can be both source and target language (in Codyt projects).
  • isadd: True if the language is an additional language. For example, most jobs have a source and a target language. However, the job may be part of a project with many more languages. A manager is authorized to see all "additional" languages.
  • canEdit: True: Content of this language is "in principle" qualified for edits. This is a global access right and can be revoked individually per segment. If the value is false, no write access will be given by any API method.
  • loc_rtl: True if the language is written right-to-left.
  • locpart: The language part of the locale. If the locale is "en-US" then the language part is "en".


 object[]
labels

Contains characteristics and access rights for labels. The object properties are:

  • canView: Boolean. True if the user can view labels. False if not. The system will not return any label details with queries if the user cannot see them.
  • canEdit: Boolean. True if the user can edit labels. Note that each segment in a query result may override this general access right and revoke it individually per segment or language.
  • labels: An array of all labels the user can view or edit. See details here: Label (Object)


object
cf

An array of all custom fields to which the user has access.

See this page for details: Custom Field (Object)


object[]
comments

Describes generic access rights for manipulating segment and document level comments in the scope:

  • canDeleteCommentsOfOtherUsers: The user can delete comments written by other users.
  • canSendEmails: The user can notify comments by email to other users (that have access to the same scope)
  • canAddComments: The user can add comments in this scope.
  • canEditComments: The user can edit comments in this scope.


object
general

Describes other access rights useful to know with the scope:

  • canSeeWorkerFullName: The user can see the names of other users in the scope: User who added comments, made revisions, etc.
  • canLockUnlockSegments: If true then the user can "in principle" lock/unlock segments. However, each segment may individually revoke this right.
  • canSetMinMax: If true then the user can "in principle" set minimum and maximum length constraints for segments. However, each segment may individually revoke this right.
  • canAddSegment: If true, then the user can add new segments to the scope. This can be true for specific scopes "DocumentSet" and "Resource" only.
  • canDeleteSegment: If true, then the user can delete segments from the scope. This can be true for specific scopes "DocumentSet" and "Resource" only.
  • canViewBA: If true then the user can see business analytical information for the scope: Statistics on number of edits, post-edits, fixes, etc.
  • canViewRefMat: If true then the user has access to reference material that may have been included with the scope. This applies to scopes "Project" and "Job" only.
  • canEditRefMat: If true then the user can add/rename/delete reference material. Typically this requires advanced project management access rights.
  • canIOXWord: If true then the user can export query results Microsoft Word or Excel. See resources/segments/view/export
  • canIOXliff: If true then the user can export query results Microsoft Word or Excel. See resources/segments/view/export
  • canViewQA: True if the user can view Quality Assurance results.
  • canRunQA: True if the user can run the Quality Assurance tool. See resources/qa
  • lockedQAProfileId: Optional ID of the QA profile that must be used if a user runs a QA.
  • canUseMT: True if the user can use machine translation of individual texts.
  • canViewBA: True if the user can see business analytics information for the scope (such as total change actions by user).
  • canGS: True if the user has access to global search features.
  • canRunSent: True if user can run a sentiment analysis individually per segment or using the editor's Actions. This requires that a sentiment analysis system is enabled under "Settings" > "Sentiment Analysis".


object
tmhits

Describes filter and sort presets used for any translation memory searches.

Presets can be specified in word count profiles in Wordbee Translator (and thus be linked to projects and jobs).

Note: These options are available only if tmhitsEnabled is true.

object
esok

Boolean that tells whether your platform supports the tmhits options or not. There may be other product features enabled only if value is true.

Over time the option will be supported for all Wordbee clients.

bool
