Configure member security

Member security enables specific security settings regarding entity definition member groups and members. Read and Write permissions can be assigned to Secured entity definition members:

  • Read - the user group can view the member groups and members of the entities in the entity definition.

  • Write - the user group can update the values of the member groups and members of the entities in the entity definition.

Note

If a taxonomy relation has no values, all users are given the Write permission, regardless of their user groups. To prevent this, the taxonomy relation must be mandatory as defined in the user group policies.

Member security only includes Secured entity definition members.

To secure an entity definition member:

  1. On the menu bar, click Manage .

  2. On the Manage page, click Entities.

  3. On the Entities page, find the required entity definition, for example M.Asset.

  5. Find the required member, for example, the Brand member in the General member group of M.Asset.

  6. Next to the member, click Actions , and select Edit.
