Requests a user to be added as an author or rights holder of a work.

'Shared rights management' professional service must be active for the authorizing user.

If the user is added as a rights holder, either the authorizing user or the invited user must have the 'Rights inscription' professional service.

A mail can be sent to the provided address asking for confirmation.

This method returns the confirmation code for the request. This code can be used to confirm or reject the request using work.rightsholders.confirm or to build the confirmation URL as the one sent in the confirmation e-mail.

Be careful not to visit the confirmation URL while logged in on Safe Creative as the authorizing user. This will be understood as the request having been sent to the authorizing user, who already is a copyright holder of the work. This will deem the request invalid.
