If you are an administrator for TRIRIGA, chances are you have access to Security Manager, which is responsible for granting access to the TRIRIGA applications through the security groups. Prior to 3.5.2, the only way to view security access was to go to the Access tab and then select the Access Configuration sub-tab. That is where you would grant (or remove) access. However, it is not very user friendly in terms of finding something and looking what the overall picture of the access of the selected security group. So in 3.5.2, a new sub-tab was access to the Access tab called Access Summary.
The Access Summary tab will show you in a column format, the permissions of the module/business object, form, tab and section. You are able to filter by each of those fields. But only the module/business object and form filters will have a drop down list. The rest of the filters are free form text so be careful when entering data into them.
It is worth noting that when you go to the Access Summary, it will take a little bit for the data to come up. This is because of the query used to extract all that data. Once you have the data up, you can start using the filters to look at the access. what modules/business objects it has. Or if there is a specific form you want to look at. The permissions field will show the specific permission, if it's Read, No Access or the name of the action, like Asse
This tab should now make it much easier to identify what a security group has access to. If you find yourself limited with what you want to do within the tab, there is an Export button, that will export the data into a tab delimited .txt file. When you click on the Export button, you will get a message letting you know that it will run in the background and you will receive a notification when it is complete. You will want to monitor your Notification notices. It should also be noted that the file is exported to the application server, not your local server. The path of where the file can be found will be in your notification. If you don't have access to the servers, you will need to reach out to your system administrators to get the file for you. Here is what the file will look like when it is imported into Excel.
So there you have it - an easier way to view the access of a security group.
