Creating an access role by using the rule form

Version:

To define a set of permissions within an application, create and configure an access role. This topic shows how to create an access role directly from the rule form. You can also create an access role by using the access role dialog.

  1. In the Dev Studio header, click Create Security Access Role Name .

  2. Enter a short description.

  3. Click Create and open.

    The Role tab opens with a role name composed of your application name, followed by a colon, followed by the short description that you entered. If your short description contains spaces or special characters, they are removed. For example, if your application is MyApp and the role short description is My Role, the ID on the Role tab is MyApp:MyRole.
  4. Configure the access role as described in Configuring an access role

  • Managing access roles

    An access role rule defines a name for a role, and represents a set of capabilities. To deliver these capabilities to users, you reference the access role name in other rule types to assign the access role to users and to provide, or restrict, access to certain classes.

  • Creating an access role by using the access role dialog box

    You can add Rule-Access-Role-Name rules and associated Rule-Access-Role-Obj rules to the current application rule set to define the classes that a user can view, update, and delete through the Access of Role to Object and Access Deny rule types. This topic shows how to create an access role by using the access role dialog. You can also create an access role by using the rule form.
