Authorize Group Reassignment

Question & Answer


Question

Is there a way to add users to a duplicated or new security group?

Answer

The log in user must have authorize group reassignment to the group that you wish to add

To add a user to a group:
Log in as maxadmin.
Go to the Users application.
Bring up the maxadmin user.
Go to the Actions menu and select "Authorize Group Reassignment".

Click "New Row" and select the group you wish to add:
e.g. TOOLMGR
Click OK.
Bring up the user you wish to have access to this group:
e.g. ADAMS
Go to the Groups tab.
Click on "New Row" and add the TOOLMGR group.

Save the record and the message "Record has been saved" is displayed.
