Duplicating functional authorities

You can duplicate an existing functional authority to create another one.

To duplicate functional authorities:

  1. Right-click the Sterling Connect:Direct® server where the functional authorities are located and click Configure Server > Functional Authorities.
  2. Highlight the functional authorities record to duplicate.
  3. Select the action Duplicate.
  4. Type a unique name for the functional authority in the User ID field.
  5. If necessary, change functional authority field values on the Process Control, Process Statements, Server Control, Configuration, Overrides, and Directory panels, clicking Next to go the next panel.
  6. To copy these functional authorities over ones that might exist on a server, select Overwrite object if it already exists on the server.
  7. In the Job Name field, type a name for the configuration job. In the Job Description field, type a description of the configuration job.
  8. Select a timing option for running the job:
    • Now to initiate the functional authority duplication job immediately.
    • Hold for later to send the job to the job queue with a status of Held.
    Note: Select Hold for later if you are not ready to initiate the functional authority duplication job.
    • Schedule for later and then specify a time zone and date/time when the job is to run. This option sends the job to the job queue with a status of Scheduled.

    Click Next.

  9. Click Finish.
  10. If you selected Hold for later as the job timing option, write down the job number so you can run it at a later time.
  11. To rerun the job, or a step within the job, or to view information about the completed job, click Go To Job Viewer; otherwise, click Close.
