Admin Access Control

OVERVIEW

Admin Access Control allows the SuperUser, or FullAccess users with permission to create/modify users, to control the admin access of FullAccess users that do not have permission to create/modify users.

By default, all Host Company FullAccess users are given the permission to view/edit all admin modules (except users). Through Admin Access Control, a FullAccess user can be restricted from accessing certain Product Families, Supported Product Families, and Data Table Folders on the admin side of the application.

If the user is restricted from accessing anything (even just one Product Family or one Data Table Folder), he/she will also not be able to access any other admin modules (including Commerce, the Document Designer, Parts, and so on) through the Admin Home Page besides the Product Families, Supported Product Families, and Data Table Folders he/she explicitly has access to.

ClosedExample

For example, if FullAccess User 1 only has access to Product Family A, and is restricted from accessing all other Product Families, Supported Product Families, and Data Table Folders, the user will only be able to access Product Family A on the admin side of the application. User 1 will have no access to any other admin modules through the Admin Home Page, which will look like the screen shot below.

If FullAccess User 2 has not had access restricted to any Product Families, Supported Product Families, or Data Table Folders, he/she will have full access to all admin modules (except users).


ClosedImportant Implementation Information

If you restrict access to any Product Families, Supported Product Families, or Data Table Folders, you also should modify the Navigation Menu links so that the admin(s) cannot access modules they should be restricted from through the Navigation Bar.

For example, in the image below, the user has had access restricted and cannot access any admin modules besides Data Tables through the Admin Home Page, but the user can still access Users, Groups, Parts, Catalog Definition, and so on, through the Navigation Bar. Access to these links should be removed using Navigation Menus. For more information, see Navigation Menu.


ADMINISTRATION

ClosedSetting Admin Access Permissions

  1. Log in as the SuperUser or a FullAccess user with permission to create/modify users.
  2. ClosedNavigate to the User Administration page.

    1. Click Admin to go to the Admin Home Page.
    2. Click Internal Users in the Users section.

      The User Administration List page appears.

    1. Click the name of a FullAccess user that does not have permission to create/modify users.

      That user’s User Administration page appears.

  3. Click the Access Permissions tab.

  4. Select/deselect the Product Families, Supported Product Families, and Data Table Folders that the user should/should not have access to, respectively.

    If the Has Access checkbox is selected for any component, the user will have access to view and modify that component on the admin side.

  5. Click Apply or Update to save changes to the user’s admin access permissions.

NOTES

Admin Access Control does not impact the user side. A FullAccess user who is restricted from a Product Family on the admin side can still interact with the Product Family on the user side, unless access to the Product Family is restricted for that user through the Home Page. For more information, see Home Page.
