Information Studio enables you to create and configure databases and to load documents into databases. This chapter describes the security roles needed to run Information Studio. For details about the MarkLogic Server security model and about configuring users and roles, see Understanding and Using Security Guide and Security Administration in the Administrator's Guide.
Information Studio uses the
infostudio-admin-internal role to amp certain functions that Information Studio performs. You should not explicitly grant the
infostudio-admin-internal role to any user. This role is only for internal use by Information Studio.
infostudio-admin user is a preconfigured user that handles Content Processing Framework (CPF) restart and resumes unfinished Information Studio tasks in the event of an unexpected shutdown and restart of MarkLogic Server. When MarkLogic Server is restarted, long-running collectors resume loading documents to the database, as described in Collector Type and MarkLogic Server Restart. In this situation, the original user that started the collector is unknown, so the purpose of the
infostudio-admin user is to resume control of the collector.
