How to automount GPT partitions and set read/write permissions?

How do I make partitions on my GPT disk automount on startup - for each of the following scenarios:

  1. Every user can read and write the data.
  2. Every user can read (read only) the data, but only I have read/write permissions.

May I remind you:
The util fdisk doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted.

What I have already tried:
Udisks Gnome tool (Disks) shows More actions > Edit mount options > Automatic mount options: ON

What happened:
My external USB hard drive was automounting just fine. Then I taken it out of the case and connected via SATA ultrabay. It works, just the system asks for authentication when I try to access the partitions.
