TitleChange the permissions of all the bitstreams in an item
Primary ActorRepository administrator, collection administrator

A student Susan has submitted her thesis, consisting of several bitstreams, to the repository. During the submission process, she forgot to set an embargo for her thesis. She notices her mistake several days later, and contacts the repository administrator, Mina, to rectify this.

Mina uses the "Authorizations" feature in the "Edit item" page to change the access to all of the bitstreams. To do so, she clicks the "Batch change policies" link on the "Original" bundle. She is redirected to the screen where she can chose from a dropdown list to either apply open access policies, embargoed access policies or closed access policies on all of the bundles bitstreams.
