Enabling Project Features

XNAT Project Owners have the ability to customize access to certain functional "features" within their projects. Each of these features can be enabled or disabled for each of the user groups in your project, including any Custom User Groups that you may have created.

Enabling or Disabling Project Features in the XNAT UI

Project Owners can access the Project Feature panel via the "Access" tab on the Project home page.

After clicking on the Manage Features button, the user will be taken to a page where they will find a matrix of features and available user roles in the project, with a set of checkboxes that will enable or disable access to these features for users.

The checkbox toggles on this page take effect immediately for all users in your project. There is no additional "Save" or "Confirm" step needed.

For example, if a Project Owner in the "AbCTSeg" project wanted to disable the use of the "Manage Files" interface for all non-owners and direct users to custom resource uploaders instead, the Features panel would look something like this:

In certain situations, the site administrator may have turned off certain features - thereby not allowing project owners to set them for a given user group. In this case, when opening the "Manage Features" page will look something like the following image - where the "Download Data" feature has been disabled for project owners.

Using the Features API

The availability of these UI features in your project can be checked or set by using the Project Features API.
