Administrators and administrator groups can be granted specific rights with regard to objects in the structure tree. These permissions are inherited "downwards", e.g. from a folder to the devices within this folder.
You can change the permission settings after selecting an object in the following ways:
- via Access control in the context menu of the object
- via the Access control symbol in the symbol bar
- via the menu item Edit > Access control
The above list contains all object-related permissions available in the UMS structure tree. Only one selection is available for each selected object. For example, a view cannot be assigned updates and cannot be shut down.
Associated permissions are automatically set together but can be changed manually later on. Enabled permissions or denials relating to nodes affect all objects within the node.
The withdrawal of permissions, i.e. Deny, always overrides the granting of permissions, i.e. Allow.
The overview shows selected administrator rights to an object. Details can be found under Effective Rights. The rules for determining rights are also shown here, e.g. whether the permission was granted directly or whether it is granted via a group or an inheritance within the tree structure.
