Access daily occurrence book: Fine grain permission feature release
Access daily occurrence book with fine grain permission feature
Now you can define which user has access to which daily occurrence book. The fine grain permissions feature uses the concept of ‘groups’ to define which users can view, edit and open which daily occurrence book.
This feature is ideal for administrators running SIRV with multiple users and occurrence books.
Unlike paper daily occurrence books, you can limit who has access to your occurrence books! After all, if you have our Threat AI service you receive notifications in the book and a guard in Manchester doesn’t need to know about protests in London.
Because access is usually given to many people rather than one person, groups are an easy and fast way to define user access.
User and Site Groups
Firstly, name a user group and add users to that group. Then name a site group and add sites/occurrence books to that group. Thereafter, define user access by adding site group to user group. If a user is not given a user group they won’t have access any DOB.
Switch on fine grain permissions
Once a user and site group have been linked, switch on fine grain permission.
Can some users see all sites / daily occurrence books?
Yes. If you want some users to see all sites / daily occurrence books, simply put them in a user group and add all the site groups to that user group.
Search users and groups
If you have many users and/or daily occurrence books, you’ll find the search facility useful. Because it allows you to quickly see what group of daily occurrence books the user can access or which occurrence books are in which site group.
Remove home page graphs
If you wish to give access to an occurrence book and nothing else you probably want to remove the homepage graphs. Because there is a role feature for home page graphs, to remove this is easy. Simply go to roles and ensure the role given to the user does not assign home page graphs. As a result, when logging in the user will only see help videos, in place of graphs.
