SAM V2:Permissions

From CIDI Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The permissions table is one of the administrative tables in SAM V2. It is used to specify if a user can add, delete, edit, or view records within a table.

Within SAM V2, permissions are setup per user for each table. It is possible to control if the user can add, edit, delete, or view records within the table. There is no field or record level permission in SAM V2, so if a user can view a table, they can view all records and all fields within the table.

Typically, only the SAM V2 administrator has access to modify the permissions table.

If you want to grant a user the same permissions as another user, use Copy User Permissions under the Administration menu.
