Secured Entity Types - Platform

An entity type is a category of items to which you want to grant or deny access. For example, there is an entity type called "Dataflows" which controls permissions for all dataflows on the system. Platform entity types apply to all Spectrum™ Technology Platform installations, as compared to module-specific entity types that apply only if you have installed particular modules. The platform-level entity types are:

Audit Log
Controls access to the System > Logs > Audit Log area in Management Console.
Dataflows
Controls access to all dataflow types (jobs, services, and subflows) in Enterprise Designer.
Note: If a user does not have the Edit permission, the user will only see the exposed version and the last saved version in the Versions pane in Enterprise Designer.
Dataflows - Expose
Controls the ability to make dataflows available for execution.
Note: In order to expose the latest saved version of the dataflow (the version that's always at the top of the Versions pane in Enterprise Designer) the user must have the Edit permission for the Dataflows secured entity type in addition to the Edit permission for the Dataflows - Expose secured entity type. This is because the latest saved version must first be saved as a version before it can be exposed, which requires the Edit permission for the dataflow.
Flow Defaults - Data Type Conversion
Controls access to the Flows > Defaults > Data Type Conversions area in Management Console. All users have View access to data type conversion options. You cannot remove View access.
Flow Defaults - Malformed Records
Controls access to the Flows > Defaults > Malformed Records area in Management Console. All users have View access to malformed record options. You cannot remove View access.
Flow Defaults - Reports
Controls access to the Flows > Defaults > Reports area in Management Console. All users have View access to report options. You cannot remove View access.
Flow Defaults - Sort Performance
Controls access to the Flows > Defaults > Sort Performance area in Management Console. All users have View access to sort performance options. You cannot remove View access.

Process Flows - Expose
Controls the ability in Enterprise Designer to make process flows available for execution.
Note: In order to expose the latest saved version of the process flow (the version that's always at the top of the Versions pane in Enterprise Designer) the user must have the Edit permission for the Process Flows secured entity type in addition to the Edit permission for the Process Flows - Expose secured entity type. This is because the latest saved version must first be saved as a version before it can be exposed, which requires the Edit permission for the dataflow.
