|Security for the Spectrum™ Technology Platform / Access Control|
Access control settings work in conjunction with roles to define the permissions for a user. Roles define the permissions for categories of entities, such as all dataflows or all database resources, and access control settings define the permissions for specific entities, such as specific jobs or specific database connections.
To configure access control:
The secured entities you chose are displayed. The check boxes indicate the permissions in effect for the selected role or user.
|The permission is inherited from the role.|
|The permission is inherited from the role and cannot be overridden.|
|The permission is granted, overriding the permission specified in the user or role.|
|The permission is denied, overriding the permission specified in the user or role.|
The following shows access control settings for the role RetentionDepartmentDesigner.
In this example, the Platform.Dataflow secured entity type is set to allow the View and Modify permissions but not the Delete permission. So by default, any user that has the RetentionDepartmentDesigner role would have these permissions for all dataflows. However, you want to prevent users with this role from modifying the ExampleJob1 dataflow only. So, you clear the checkbox in the Modify column for ExampleJob1. Now users with this role will not be able to modify this dataflow but will still be able to modify other dataflows.
