Step 7: Assigning Admin Authorizations

Step 7: Assigning Admin Authorizations


This is step 7 of setting up a fully working Brand in Enterprise Server 9 for everyday use in a standard workflow environment. (See a list of all steps)


Within Enterprise, a distinction is made between 2 levels of administrator authorizations:

  • Full admin rights. This gives access to all Maintenance applications in Enterprise Server for all Brands.
  • Limited admin rights. This gives access to the Brand Maintenance page for only a specific Brand. All Maintenance applications for other Brands will not be available.

This difference is controlled by the 'Admin' option on the User Group Maintenance page.

When the option is selected, the group is treated as a group with full admin rights; when not selected, the group is treated as a group with limited admin rights.

Setting up user groups with full admin rights

Step 1. Make sure that a user account is available for each user who needs to be added to the Admin group. See Managing user accounts.

Step 2. Create a user group which should hold the users with admin rights. See Managing user accounts.

Step 3. In the user group, make sure that the option Admin is selected.

Step 4. Add users to the group. See Managing user accounts.

The process is now complete. The fact that the 'Admin' option is enabled automatically grants all users of that group full access to the Enterprise system. It is not necessary therefore to add the group to one of the Authorization sections of a Brand or Overruled Issue.

Setting up user groups with limited admin rights

Step 1. Make sure that a user account is available for each user who needs to be added to the Admin group. See Managing user accounts.

Step 2. Create a user group which should hold the users with admin rights. See Managing user accounts.

Step 3. In the user group, make sure that the option Admin is not selected.

Step 4. Access the Brand Maintenance page for the Brand to which the user group needs to be added.

Step 5. Locate the Admin Authorizations section.

Step 8. Click Add.
