I posted this to the list earlier but the list seems more active this week so I thought I’d try again. One of ouse users is manger of a collection but can’t create containers in it here is what they report:

“While attempting to create top containers for instances, I only had access to “browse” but not create. I had management level access at the time. I had to be given admin level access to be able to gain the create button for top containers. The create option disappeared when placed on just admin level access. I had to be placed in both levels of access to be able to create top containers.”

Our server has only been in production for a few weeks and is set-up per the http://www.archivesspace.org recommendations. Our server does authenticate via LDAP (Active Directory) but our users experience is the same using an AD or ArchivesSpace local users. Do you know how we might resolve this or what might be the next steps in troubleshooting? Thanks!
