This section provides help on setting permissions on Map Projects. Permissions are set on roles which are listed on the right hand side panel. The roles are defined in Spectrum’s Management Console.

Spectrum Spatial Analyst lists only those roles from Spectrum which starts with word Analyst, i.e. AnalystUserRole or AnalystGuestRole. The administrator can select one or more roles from the available list of roles.

The permissions that are set are also propagated to the named maps, layers, tiles and tables which are referenced by the Map Project. The individual permissions on these resources can be seen in Spectrum Spatial Manager.

When assigning permissions, administrators should pay careful consideration to the Guest role. The Guest role is only available if Analyst is installed in the Guest & Secured mode. When Analyst is installed in Guest & Secured mode, you can browse to Analyst and see the maps and data which are assigned the guest role without authentication. All users will initially access Analyst in guest mode and can then choose to sign in to see secure data assigned to the roles which they belong to.

To add the permissions on the selected map project, follow the steps given below:

  1. On the Permissions page, click the Available Roles button on the right hand side of the screen.
    The Available Roles panel opens.
  2. In the Available Roles panel, select the roles you want to assign to the selected map project.
  3. Click the Save button to save the changes.
  4. Click the button to remove the role from the Roles list.
