Elvis 6 API - Permission Masks

Elvis 6 API - Permission Masks

Every asset returned by the Elvis API has a field indicating the permissions of the current user for that asset. The permissions mask consists of a string with one character for every permission available in Elvis:

VPWUMERXCD

  • V = VIEW
  • P = VIEW_PREVIEW
  • W = VIEW_NON_WATERMARKED (hide watermarks) 1
  • U = USE_ORIGINAL
  • M = EDIT_METADATA
  • E = EDIT
  • R = RENAME
  • X = MOVE
  • C = CREATE
  • D = DELETE

1 This is valid for any server mode. When watermarks.enabled=false, W will be always set by the server. For more information about watermarking, see Showing watermarks on images in Elvis 6.

When a permission is not available, it's position in the string will be replaced with a dash:

VPU----C-
