Restricting Release Permissions
It is possible to restrict the type of release a user can create. The two permissions are:
‘Create SCORM or API releases’ which restricts the user to creating SCORM for LMS, Backup SCORM and API releases
and ‘Create an Online Link release’ which restricts the user to creating only Online Link releases
You can find these permissions under the 'Releases' section in the User Role configuration
If a user's permissions have been restricted to creating a certain type of release, they will see the that option that has been disabled will be inactive and they will not be able to create a release of that type.
