Use “Modify User Settings” to Change Access Settings

You can use the Modify User Settings feature of the Installation Customization Tool to create a companion package that will lock down access to InfoConnect features. With this approach, you open the Permissions Manager from the Installation Customization Tool. The modified access settings are automatically saved to your companion file and deployed to the correct directory.

NOTE:You can also create your access files by launching the Permissions Manager directly, you can deploy them by creating a companion file as described in Create a Companion Package to Install Customized Settings Files.

To configure access from the Installation Customization Tool

  1. From your administrative installation point, open the Installation Customization Tool from a shortcut or by typing the following command line:

    path_to_setup\setup.exe /admin

  7. Permissions Manager opens in a separate window. Set the Accessibility level for the features you want to change. When you click Finish, Permissions Manager closes. In the Installation Customization Tool window, under Location, you will see where the modified .access file will be installed. This example shows a companion package that is being configured for all users of the machine.
