=== Managing passwords === === Passwords and Permissions ===

bepasty uses only passwords (without usernames) to control access. Depending on which password is used to login to bepasty, the user will have different permissions. They can have any combination of the following permissions:
 * '''read''': Read a file, if they know the URL.
 * '''list''': List all files.
 * '''create''': Paste or upload a new file.
 * '''delete''': Delete a file.
 * '''admin''': Can lock and unlock files.

After bepasty is installed, it comes pre-configured for the following roles:
 * Viewer: can view and list files
 * Editor: can view, list, create, and delete files
 * Administrator: has all permissions

These roles support a use-case of file sharing between known, authorized users. If needed, you can re-configure bepasty to support other roles and use-cases.

=== Distributing passwords ===

By default, the '''Public Access''' configuration is set to ''None'', so a password is required for any use of bepasty. This means that you will need to distribute the passwords to the appropriate users, through any communication channels that you have.

Note that you may want to create multiple passwords with the same permissions. This allows you to distribute a unique password to each user (or to a group of users). Then if you want to revoke access to one user, you can simply delete their password. The other users with their own passwords will not be affected.
