How Permission Works in SmartStruxure
- Building Operation Workstation
Software Permissions are used to control user activities in a software application. For example, you can set up these permissions to manage the type of data and commands the user has permission to within a workspace, panel, or domain.
SmartStruxure software permissions comprise path permissions and command permissions.
- Path Permission: Path permissions give a user or user account group basic permissions to the objects defined in a path. The permission level set on a path applies to all sub levels unless you set a new permission level for a sub level.
- Command Permission: To make the system even more flexible and useful, you can assign a user account group with special command permissions. Use the command permission to control exceptions from path permissions that allow or deny actions on specific commands. Command permissions will not restrict a user from specific properties of a given window. They function to remove items from Action or Rigth Click menus.
- The path permission settings of lower branches overrule the settings of higher branches within a user account group.
- The highest permission rule wins between user account groups.
- The software permissions for a single user account overrule the permissions of any inherited user account group permissions.
- The path permission rules also apply to the basic commands Create, Copy, Paste, Cut, Move, Rename, and Delete. For example, you only need the Read path permission level to copy an object but you need the Full Access path permission level to paste an object. See the table for more details.
