Richard,

Look in the Cross Application Support User's Guide, Security Maintenance.
You will need to set up Group security first before you can set up User's
menu options. It is double to work to control what menu options are visible
when a user logs in or you can simply control if they can open a list menu
option under the groups.

I suggest you create a new user, then experiment with turning on and off
some of the menu options under groups. Log in as that user and see what
you can and cannot do after 'reading' the Security Maintenance section in
this User's Guide. Remember to do things in small steps or you could affect
your users more than you originally intended.

Once you understand how the security works, it really is not that
complicated, but structured.

Good luck,
Paola Groeber

Dale,

I appreciate your guidance. Can you tell me what file I need to look
at to
get the user/menu/options authorized. The file that I am populating has the

menu, user, option, and description of the option. Also, is there any
documentation on Mapics security that is available to the public?

Thanks again for your help. I really appreciate it.


Warmest Regards,

Richard Reeve

Richard,

I handled that by using XA's Personal Menus. All the user got on their
screens
was what they were allowed to use. That, and eliminating command line
access,
is VERY effective at handling green screen authority.

Just a suggestion!!! :)

Sent from my iPhone, sorry about the typos!

Greg,

Please forgive my ineptness where Mapics is concerned. What I'm task
at
doing is producing a file that contains a specific users authorized menus
and
all authorized options on that menu(s). Are you telling me that Cross
Apps/Maintenance-Change/Security Maintenance/Generate
Reports capable of doing this (producing a file rather than a report)? If
not,

can you give me a little guidance as to which files I should be looking
at?

Thanks.


Warmest Regards,

Why not use Cross Apps/Maintenance-Change/Security Maintenance/Generate
Reports
Available in XAR4 --- should be in later versions too.

All,


I have been tasked with writing a connector to list the
menus/options that each user within Mapics is authorized to. Can anyone
point me in the right direction as far as which files to use to retrieve
this information?

Thanks so much.


Warmest Regards,

Richard Reeve
