Error description

  • The DXL associated with controlling access rights on creation of
    discussions is not documented in the DXL manual.
    
    The following are the perms available. They are generally
    self-explanatory. To check the 'Allow everyone to create
    discussions' add the everyone group to the list using the string
    'Everyone' and save it. Similarly remove the group to uncheck it
    and allow other users/groups to be added.
    
    
    bool canModifyDiscussions({Module| Item| string}[, {User
    |string}])   //Current user if parameter not supplied
    bool canEveryoneModifyDiscussions({Module | Item})
    void addUser(Item, {User | string})
    void addGroup(Item, {Group | string})
    void removeUser(Item, {User | string})
    void removeGroup(Item, {Group | string})
    string saveDiscussionAccessList(Item)
    
    
    Where a {Module|Item|String} variants are possible, either
    should represent the module concerned.
