Managing Users and Groups
The Security Framework uses Groups to control what a User can and cannot access in an application.
- Adding Users
Users must be registered in the users table in order to log into your web application. Learn how to add them using the Web Security tools.
- Adding Users and Groups
Users and Groups can be added to the web security table through the Web Security dialog.
- Summary For a Security Group
If the security framework has been enabled, you can use the Show pages/components authorized for selected group tool to get a summary of pages, reports, and components that members of a security group are authorized to access.
- Select Groups Dialog
The Security Groups dialog allows you to select groups assigned to objects and pages.
- 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.
