To Assign Resource Permissions

In order to use these property screens, your user account must have User Administration permissions.

  1. Click Security under Configure on the menu on the left-hand side of an Enterprise Server Administration Web page.
  2. Click Security Managers.
  3. Select the security manager containing the resource by clicking the relevant radio button in the Select column.
  4. Click Edit.
  5. Click Properties.
  6. Click Resources.

    This displays a list of available resource classes.

  7. Click the Edit button adjacent to the resource class to which the resource belongs.

    This displays a list of available resources.

  8. Click the Edit button adjacent to the resource.
  9. Specify the Access Control List(ACL) string for the resource.

    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 (eg "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.

  10. Click OK.
