Hi Kari,

We were also happy with the former permissions structure in ATK, but ended up 
following Yale's good advice on how to create much more granular user groups 
that give us the ability to assign permissions at a very detailed level (I 
think Maureen Callahan originally posted this guidance to the listserv some 
months ago). I've attached the grid that we adopted here, and it's worked very 
well to phase in permissions in sync with trainings. Most users belong to 
multiple groups and it gives us a lot of control.

This doesn't directly answer your question, but I hope is helpful.

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Does anyone have a mapping between ATK and 
ArchivesSpace permissions?

We're at the stage of assigning permissions in AS to our users and are using 
the basis for what they had in ATK for our starting point.  They don't seem to 
map very directly and we are hoping someone has already done this work and will 
be willing to share your mapping with us.

We didn't make any modifications to the permission groups in ATK.

Alternatively, is there a place in ArchivesSpace where we can set the 
permission actions for each group?  In ATK there was the page where you could 
pick and choose any feature to be allowed or disallowed for a particular group. 
 We haven't seen that option in AS - would someone point us to that location?
