SESSION TWO SECURITY AND GROUP PERMISSIONS Security and Group Permissions
In this session we will establish your different user groups and set up permissions for each group. We will perform a review of a standard Organizational Hierarchy to help visually show how role based group security can be implemented, by defining each group from Administrative to Technician, to Web Requestors. Group Screen Settings/Views and Master Security will also be covered in this session. Definition of Sprocket User and Group security Definition of each existing group in Sprocket deployment Review of a standard Organizational Hierarchy to help visually show how role based group security can be implemented Screen Layout Manager Permissions Group Screen Settings Group Permission Data Collection Excel Template Instructions Security and Group Permissions SECTION ONE Security Overview
Security and Group Permissions Definition of Sprocket User and Group security Autonomous Groups – The autonomous group allows for the ability to apply permissions at a user level. Each User created in the system will have an “Autonomous Group” Groups - The Groups module allows the Sprocket System Administrator to manage the groups for the users.
