Managing Users and Groups
The Security Framework uses Groups to control what a User can and cannot access in an application.
- Seed Users and Groups
Seed users and groups are managed using the Security Framework tools in the development environment.
- Storing Additional User Information
When you use the Security Framework in an Alpha Anywhere application, the table that contains the list of user names and passwords is a system table which cannot be modified to add fields to store additional information about each user. Instead, an Extended User Information Table must be used. This is especially important for applications published to Alpha Cloud or the Application Server for IIS.
