The active subscriptions part is important because if you do not have a subscription to a resource you add to a permission set, then you and your users will not get access. The rest of this article and all related articles will assume you have your subscriptions set up.
First off, you only need to be concerned about this function if you are either using restrictive mode or sending your users to MyAthens. If you are doing neither, then you do not need to allocate resources to permission sets.
You can select the resources here you want to allocate to permission sets and your users will see these in personalised lists of resources such as you would find in MyAthens. You can also specify your own links to include in MyAthens if you need to.
On the resource in question, select the button that says allocate or allocated. Both will bring up the same options:
Tick the permission sets that you want to add the resource to (or untick any you want to remove the resource from) and save. The options at the top will let you select all permission sets, only the default ones or none.
Once selected by ticking the boxes on the cards select the Actions button.
After choosing the Allocate to permission sets action you will have the option to allocate to (and remove from) any of your permission sets in the same way as with a single resource.
Select the resource or resources from the catalogue via the checkboxes on the cards and select the 'Cascade...' option. This will add the resource(s) to any permission sets that are marked as default belonging to any of your sub-administrators plus any of their sub-administrators and so on; you may choose whether to include your own default permission sets in this allocation or not.
To remove a resource from your organisation's permission sets
Select the resource or resources from the catalogue via the checkboxes on the cards and select the 'Revoke...' option. The will remove the resource(s) from any permission sets that belong to any of your sub-administrators, any of their sub-administrators and so on; you may choose to include your own permission sets in this removal or not.
To filter the catalogue instead of search
On the resource cards, the redirector icon can be selected to filter for compatible resources.
Each will add text to the search box such as:
You can filter this way or search by name, but not both at the moment.
