How to configure object permissions

This procedure describes how to configure permissions for objects that support permissions.

  1. Right-click the object in its application window.
  2. On the shortcut menu, click Security.
    The Security command is available for any object that supports security configuration.
  3. You can choose to block inheritance for the object.
    1. In the Inherit permissions from the parent box, click the browse button (...).
      This opens the Security Configuration - Change inheritance dialog box.
    2. In the Inherit permissions from the parent box, click "Do not inherit".
    3. Optional: To copy permissions from the parent object, select the Copy inherited permissions check box.
      Select this check box to modify rather than discard inherited permissions.
    4. Click the OK button.
  4. In the Users and groups with permissions box, you can configure users to whom you want to assign permission.
    • To add a user or group, click the Add.

      This opens the User and Group Selection dialog box, which allows you to select from Output Manager users or add users if they are not already listed. For details selecting or adding users, click the Help button in this dialog box.

    • To remove a selected user or group, click the Delete button.

      This removes a user from the object, but it does not remove the user from Output Manager.

  5. To change permissions for a selected user or group, select or clear check boxes in the Assigned permissions box.
    • To assign all permissions, click the Select All button.
    • To clear all permissions, click the Unselect All button.
    The permissions shown here depend on the type of object. Selections here add to any permissions already inherited from the parent object. Clearing or not selecting a check box in the Assigned permissions box does not remove an inherited permission.
  6. When you are finished, click the OK button.
