Summary14514: Purpose of permission "update" - CPDB

I cannot update shared participants since I have to specifically say when I share the participants that I give the right to the respective user to "update/edit" my users. Not sure exactly what is then the purpose of "update"

Also, it does not affect my right to edit/update the users added by me into the CPDB.

Steps To Reproduce
  1. Give create, view/read import and export permissions to a user
  2. Share participants with the respective user - do not give the right to the user to edit your participants
  3. The update permissions is useless in this regard

Then : must do exactly like Survey : checking "update" on global allow updating ALL participants : really seem better :)

I side with Denis here, I think the global permission should keep the general logic.
Maybe put this up for discussion tomorrow.

The issue withnthis is like when we fix the issue with Survey global Permission : previously global permission are never used : you check "View" : no more right for this user .

When we fix the issue : some user's say all of theiur user see (and update) all survey , because they checked this Permission :)
