Resource Entities

You can specify properties about your security manager resource entities on the RESOURCES OPTIONS page.

Specify the unique name of the resource class.


Specify a description of the resource class.

Specify the Access Control List (ACL) string for the resource entity. The ACL specifies the access rights for the resource entity. Each entry in an ACL is referred to as an Access Control Entry, or ACE. These entries are separated by semi-colons.

Each ACE specifies an actor, which is a user, a wildcard pattern for users, or a group, and one or more permissions that are granted (allow) or denied (deny) to that actor. The format for the ACE is as follows:



  • setting is allow or deny
  • actor is the name of a user, a pattern with one or more wildcards (see Wildcards) string that will be matched against the user's name, or a group name or wildcard pattern followed by a space and the word group, for example, "ADMIN group".
  • action-1 through action-n are permission tokens:
    • none
    • execute
    • read
    • update
    • add
    • delete
    • control
    • alter
    • all

    For example, the following ACL string:

    allow:Test group:Execute,Read,Update,Add,Delete;allow:Operator group:Read

    assigns the Test group execute, read, update, add and delete permissions for the resource, and assigns the Operator group read permission.
