General security settings properties

Security settings provide several properties to control the level of security on your instance.

There are two ways to set or change general security settings properties.
  • Navigate to System Properties > Security.

    Options on the Security page are Yes or No.

  • Navigate to the sys_properties.list and search for the property you want to set or change.

    Options in the System Properties table [sys_properties.list] are true or false.
