About this task

For example, the task table is the parent of both incident and problem (and many others).

When you're securing a system, it's important to understand how the security model interacts with the table hierarchy. It's also important to know which security manager you are running.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to System Properties > Security.
  2. Look at the property labeled Security Manager.
    • If it reads com.glide.sys.security.ContextualSecurityManager, you are running the Contextual Security Manager.
    • If it is blank, you are running the Simple Security Manager.
