More information for administrators

Object classes in Alloy Navigator have granular permissions for controlling the interaction of technicians with these objects. Permissions are granted to technicians through their membership in security roles. Each security role contains a specific combination of permissions.

  • Delete — allows role members to delete objects.

  • Modify — allows role members to create and modify objects.

    IMPORTANT: The Modify permission should be granted only to administrators who have a good understanding of how direct modifications may affect the system. We recommend that all modifications of objects in Alloy Navigator are always implemented through workflow Actions. The availability of Actions is also controlled by security roles.

  • View — allows role members to browse and view objects.

Any technician can have membership in multiple roles, in that case the assigned roles contribute their permissions to the effective permissions of the technician account.
