Workspace security

Relativity’s security rights are highly customizable. Each group you add to a workspace can have vastly different permissions than others. You can also copy an existing group’s permissions to save time on configuring them.

You set group permissions when adding a group to workspace, but you can change these permissions at any time from the Workspace Details page.

Note: If you assign admin permissions to a user group by copying permissions from system admins, you must unset and reset the View Workspace permission to allow the user group to edit the workspace.

This page contains the following topics:

Workspace permissions

Relativity divides workspace permissions into five categories:

Object security

The Object Security tab lists all workspace objects with their related item-level permissions. Item-level rights include:

  • None Deny object permissions set icon- denies users access to the object.
  • View Markup visibility icon - view the object. This is the lowest level object permission.
  • Edit Edit icon - edit and view the object.
  • Delete Delete redactions and highlights icon - delete, edit, and view the object.
  • Add Add object level permission icon - add new objects. This icon turns blue when the setting is unsaved; once you click Save, the blue icon becomes grey. This icon turns green when you give users this permission both when the setting is unsaved and saved.
  • Edit Security Edit security icon - grants users the ability to edit the security of objects. This icon turns blue if you click twice indicating a not applicable status.

Not all item-level rights apply to select objects. Some object permissions require corresponding tab visibility or browser permission. For example, a group with all item-level rights assigned for the Field object can only add, edit, delete, or edit security for fields with access to the Fields tab.

Note: Item-level security permissions override Object-level security permissions.

Object list

The following is a list of securable objects in a Relativity workspace. Objects with sub-options, related tab visibility permissions, or specific effective rights state the related requirements and rights.

Note: This list does not include custom objects you may find in your environment.

  • Agent Type - a category of agent. Agents manage processes in Relativity and run in the background to complete jobs that you or another user scheduled in your environment.
  • Analytics Categorization Result - an object that displays the results of an Analytics Categorization Set.
  • Analytics Categorization Set - a group of parameters used for gathering example documents that Analytics uses as the basis for identifying and grouping other conceptually-similar documents.
    • Viewing, editing, deleting, or adding Analytics categorization sets, or editing security of Analytics categorization sets requires access to the Analytics Categorization Set tab.
  • Analytics Category - an object in Analytics that define the categories specific to your analytics set.
    • Viewing, editing, deleting, or adding Analytics categories for Analytics categorization sets, or editing security of Analytics categories requires access to the Analytics Categorization Set tab.
  • Analytics Example - a document that Analytics uses to run the Analytics Set against to set a baseline.
  • Analytics Index (Relativity 9.5.196.102 and above)
    • Search index permissions must be kept in sync with permissions on the Analytics Index object.
      If a user has view permissions to Search Index, but no permissions to Analytics Index, they can still access Index Search functionality in the item list and in the viewer. If a user has full View/Edit/Add/Delete security permissions to an Analytics Index, but does not have permissions for Search Index, they will not be able to View/Edit/Add/Delete Analytics indexes.
  • Analytics Profile - a group of parameters used for specifying an Analytics Index's dimensions, concept stop words, dtSearch noise words, and filter configurations.
    • Editing, deleting, or adding Analytics profiles, or editing security of Analytics profiles requires access to the Analytics Profiles tab.
  • Annotation
    • Viewing, editing, deleting, and adding annotations in the Binders app requires View, Edit, Delete, and Add permissions assigned for the Annotation object.
  • Batch - a group of documents assembled based on criteria that an admin sets and then assigns to a reviewer for review.
    • Edit- group members can view, check out, and edit batches.
    • Delete- group members can view, edit, and delete batches.
    • Viewing and checking out (editing) available batches requires access to the Review Batches or Batch Sets tab.
    • Adding batches requires access to the Batch Sets tab.
    • Editing security on batches requires access to the Review Batches or Batch Sets tab.
  • Batch Set - the set to which the batch belongs.
    • Using any Batch Set permissions requires access to the Batch Sets tab.
  • Choice - a value applied to a single or multi-choice list field that is used in coding fields to allow reviewers to record decisions on a document.
    • Editing, deleting, or adding choices, or editing the security for choices requires access to the Choices tab.
  • Cluster Set (Relativity 9.5.196.102 and above)
    • Permissions for Cluster Set and the multiple choice fields that hold cluster data should be kept in sync.
      If a group has the None permission set on the Cluster Set object, but View/Edit/Add/Delete permissions to the Multiple Choice fields that hold cluster data, users in that group will still see Analytics clusters in the cluster browser and will be able to visualize clusters. To prevent the group from viewing the clusters in the cluster browser (or visualizing clusters), you must item-level secure the multiple choice fields that hold the cluster data for the group.
  • Color Map
    • Email Thread Visualization requires View permissions or higher for the Color Map object.
  • Cover Page
    • Viewing, editing, deleting, or adding annotation sections in the Binders app requires View, Edit, Delete, and Add permissions assigned for the CoverPage object.

  • Dashboard - a page configuration made up of widgets and item lists.

    • Editing, deleting, sorting, or adding fields, or editing the security of fields requires access to the Fields tab.
  • Folder - the name of the container of documents in Relativity that are arranged in a hierarchy in the folder browser.
    • Using any Folder permissions requires access to the Folder browser.
    • Note: You can customize permissions for individual child folders. This doesn't change the permissions of a folder's parent, but it can change the behavior of a folder's children, if you configure the children folders to inherit permissions from their parent.

  • Job History - the Job History tab in the Integration Points object, which provides information the history of import and export jobs run through Integration Points.
  • Job History Error - the Job History Errors tab in the Integration Points object, which provides information errors that occurred during import and export jobs run through Integration Points.

    • Editing, deleting, or adding lists, or editing security of lists requires access to the Lists tab.
  • Markup Set - a securable sets of annotations and redactions available to reviewers for applying text redactions to documents in the viewer.
    • Editing, deleting, or adding lists, or editing security of markup sets requires access to the Markup Sets tab.

    Note: The only proper way to secure the text behind a redaction is to the produce the document that contains the redacted text. If a group has View rights only to a markup set (not Edit or Delete rights) and a reviewer in that group loads a document in the Viewer because they have no other way to view that document, they can actually see the text behind the redaction, in which case that text is not totally secured.

  • Mass Operation - single actions performed on multiple documents or objects at the same time, such as mass edit, move delete, produce, replace, image, print image, send to CaseMap export file, cluster, and process transcripts.
