Subject [jira] [Commented] (AIRAVATA-2936) Proposal: "manage sharing" permission for delegating the ability to add/remove/update sharing of an entity

Marcus Christie commented on AIRAVATA-2936:
-------------------------------------------

Right, this would be a general capability. Anything that can be shared can also have the managing
of the sharing permissions delegated to other users.

> Currently only the owner of an entity can change the sharing settings of the entity.
For entities that are collaboratively managed this can become burdensome that all sharing
changes must be funneled through a single user. It would be useful if the entity owner could
delegate managing of who has sharing access to another user or group.
> To this end I'm proposing a new MANAGE_SHARING permission in our system.  If a user has
the MANAGE_SHARING permission for an entity, they should be able to add, remove and modify
the permissions and users/groups with which that entity is shared.
