Software Permissions Rules Management

You manage software permissions by combining various types of permissions.

By using a well-planned strategy of assigning software permissions, you can optimize performances of the users. You can also apply your policies to control exploitation of the EcoStruxure BMS.

Table: Software Permissions Rules

Property

Description

Read

Write

Command

Inherited

Indicates that the permissions are inherited from the parent folder

Note:

You need delete permissions to rename, paste and duplicate folders and objects in EcoStruxure Building Operation software.

Note:

You can always edit graphic and program objects in the relevant editor, however in order to save it on your server you need "Edit" permissions. You can save your edits on your hard drive or export to a location of your choice even if you don’t have “Edit” permissions.

Building Operation software uses basic rules to determine software permissions priorities.

  • Command permissions of a user account are inherited from the most advanced permissions in any group the user belongs to. The command permission Allow overrules Deny , and Deny overrules No Setting .

    Example. Paul belongs to Janitors and to Administrators. Janitors does not have permission to accept an alarm, but Administrators have. Paul inherits the permission to accept the alarm from Administrators.

  • Relative path permissions configured for an individual user account overrule permissions inherited from user account groups.

  • Type permissions overwrite path permissions.
