      Description

      For those institutions that have policy around what information students and/or faculty have access to, this proposed sakai.property allows locking down the "Permissions" widget in Roster to admin users only.

      In this way, the administration team can set desired permissions in course/project/etc. site templates, set the sakai.property to false, and be assured that maintainers will not be able to change the default permissions via the widget in the tool.

      The sakai.property introduced here is "roster.showPermsToMaintainers", which defaults to "true" to preserve OOTB functionality.
