Advanced Access Rights Management

You are recommended to read Data Access Control before this section.

This feature allows you to create access rights exceptions for user / catalog / field level. It is possible to grant a user group or a single user access for certain operations for a catalog while restricting the other.

To open access rights management window, click users from main menu and select access rights manager. This window displays a list of existing access right directives.

Creating / Modifying Access Right Directives

Click "Create New" button. This will open the "access right settings window".

Authority: Select the authority to which you wish to apply this access right setting. This may be either a selected user group or a selected user

Select Catalog/Field: Select the catalog or field to apply the access right setting.
Is Active: You may enable / disable this directive using this checkbox.

Beware that, access control management in SpeedBase is designed mostly for preventing accidental data loss, to keep the desired part of the information away from curious people around and from your own users who simply do not need it. This feature should not be considered as a high level of protection to conceal sensitive information from the users to whom you have given access to the location of your database.
If you want to save sensitive information like passwords, you are recommended to use encryption feature.
