Work in Progress
This is is early stage and still a work in progress.
A HubStore maintains a catalog of organizations and their ownership of projects / datasets.
It's name derives from the common appelation of "Hub" for something that organizes a collection of individual items e.g. GitHub or DataHub. The HubStore handles the information that makes a Hub a Hub.
- Account (User)
- MembershipRole e.g. admin, editor etc
- Project (which has a Dataset)
- Organization –owns–> Project
- Organization –membership–> Account
- Membership association has an associated MembershipRole.
- Do we allow Accounts to own Projects or only Organizations? Yes, we do. I think this is a key use case.
- Organization Hierarchies: Organization –parent–> Organization. One could allow for hierarchies of organizations. We do not by default but it is possible to do so.
- Team: a convenient grouping of Accounts for the purpose of assigning permissions to something
- All team members have the same status (if you want different statuses get different teams)
- Team –membership–> Account (without a role)
- Example: Github Teams
- Comment: hirerarchical organizations could make much of the use case obsolete. IME teams are an annoying feature of github that bring complexity (who exactly has access to this thing, if i want to remove Person X from access i have to check all the teams with access etc).
