In Office 365 Video, videos are managed in a professional and centralized way, such as an IT admin will control and manage the channel permission from Office 365 Video portal. But in Stream, Microsoft has broken the shackles from closed network to social platform with improved security, such as owner of the channel or video has full control on his/her channel or video. In this blog, we will compare permissions of Microsoft Stream with Office 365 Video and dive deep in to Microsoft Stream permissions.
In Stream, Channel permission depicts who can contribute videos to the channel and does not interfere with the individual Video’s permission inside the channel. Each Video in Channel, has its own permission. In Stream, the permissions are granular and it binds with the individual Video in Channel.
Note: Currently Microsoft Stream is in preview. The Stream team actively receiving feedback from users and Microsoft will provide more IT controls in future. You can submit or vote for existing ideas here.
|S.No||Insight on Permission||Microsoft Stream (Preview)||Office 365 Video|
|1.||Permission Approach||Granular - Owner of a channel or video assigns permission||Centralized - IT admin assigns permission|
|2.||Permission Scope||Both channel and video||Only channel|
|3.||Channel Permission||Owner, Contributor||Owner, Editor, Viewer|
Owner, ViewerNOTE - Video permissions are unique and does not depend on channel permission
|Owner, Editor, Viewer (inherited from its channel (container))|
|5.||Channel owner||Single user (user who created channel)||Multiple users|
|6.||Video owner||Single user (user who uploaded video)||Multiple users (inherited from its channel (container))|
Video is the top level permission of the Stream because only user with valid permission can view the video. For example, if a user has permission for channel, but don’t have permission for video, in that condition user will not be able to view the video.
Everyone in the organization can add the video in the permitted channel.
Only owner of the video can delete the video.
Edit video actions for Video owner - title, description, permission settings, thumbnail, captions
Channel is the second Level of permission in the office 365 Stream because it does not control who can view the video, so everyone in the organization can view/play the video in any channel, but channel permission can control only channel setting, that is Add video to channel and Edit channel (name, description, privacy settings, channel cover image).
Everyone in the organization can add the Channel
Only owner of the channel can delete the channel.
