Simple security manager

Simple security manager

The simple security manager protects fields via their dictionary entries.

Note: Functionality described here requires the Admin role.

To secure a field, bring up that field's dictionary entry and add read/write/delete roles to the field. Row level operations (like insert or delete) are implemented by putting roles on the table's sys_dictionary entry.

Since the simple security manager is based on fields themselves, it has no concept of, or interaction with, the system's table hierarchy. If a field is defined on task, it is secured identically whether that field is actually part of an incident, a change, or a problem.
