VLNavigator User Group Tab
The User Group tab is displayed when you select a user group from the Users tree branch.
Select User Group enabled to allow users belonging to this group to log into the Cleo VLNavigator and VersaLex applications.
Select LDAP User Group to enable the LDAP panel on the User Group tab and automatically populate the group with members of the LDAP service. Users are authenticated through the external directory server.
If necessary, select Override System Options to specify settings for Base DN and Search Filter to match the intended set of users for this mailbox. Alternatively, the Extend Search Filter can be used to append rules to the default system search filter.
Use List to list the users and their attributes matching the Base DN and Search Filter.
User Group VLNavigator Privileges
Use the VLNavigator Privileges tab to specify which parts of the tree pane are visible to the user group.
There are three trees for which you can assign privileges for the user group: Systems, Users, and Applications. For each, you can select from the following privileges:
- No access: tree cannot be viewed.
- View-only: tree is viewable, but changes cannot be applied.
- Editable: tree is viewable and changes can be applied.
When you select View-only or Editable for any of the trees, you can apply the privilege to all items or a subset of the items in the tree. If the user group has at least one view-only or editable VLNavigator privilege, it is allowed to log into any Cleo VLNavigator instance installed within the configured VersaLexes.
Alternatively, you can control the items available for the user group on a per-tree basis using the Systems tree branches accessible, Users tree branches accessible, and Applications tree branches accessible fields.
User Group: System Privileges Tab
Use the System Privileges tab to control the system-level items to which a user group has access.
- Choose one of the following for each System Privilege:
- No access: item cannot be viewed.
- View-only: item is viewable, but changes cannot be applied.
- Editable: item is viewable and changes can be applied.
- Additionally, a subset of the System privileges, if set to View-only or Editable, can also have Stop/start enabled; this indicates that a member of the user group is allowed to stop and start (that is, run) the item. Relative to the System options privilege, this indicates that a member of the user group is allowed to stop the Windows service or Unix daemon. Relative to the Hosts privilege, this indicates that a member of the user group is allowed to stop and start the actions within hosts.
- Host folder branches can be set to a semicolon-separated list of VersaLex host folder names that are accessible by the user group. This setting affects which host folders are viewable both with the VersaLex application. The * and ? wildcard characters can be used. This setting has no affect on the root folder of the active host tree; it only impacts the subfolders. This setting also influences wherever active hosts are listed or referenced, including the scheduler, router, TCP/IP port usage report, transfer log report, system log, messages pane, etc. In general, if a host is not viewable, configuration and status information about the host is not available throughout the user interface.
- If the user group has at least one view-only or editable system privilege, it is allowed to log into the selected set of VersaLex Pools and individual instances of the VersaLex application.
User Group File Transfer Report Tab
The following describes the File Transfer Report tab. The VersaLex Transfer Report table columns, accessible file types, and accessible transaction types can be configured per user group. The Accessible File Types and accessible transactions take effect only on the VersaLexes that are licensed and configured to track specific EDI, XML, or TEXT document contents.
- A user group that is no longer User Group enabled cannot be used to log into either the Cleo VLNavigator or VersaLex applications.
- Each item in the Report Column table can be shown in the VersaLex Transfer Report table by enabling the Report Column. The Custom Name allows the user to configure custom column headers in the table. The Up and Down buttons are used to arrange the order of the enabled columns in the Transfer Report Table.
- The Accessible File Types configures which tracked file types (EDI, XML, or Text) can be accessed by users of this user group. If a user does not have access to this file type, then they will not be able to View or Email a copy of the file but they will be able to see the transfer occurred in the VersaLex Transfer Report table.
- The Transactions user group can/can NOT access contains a table of all ASC X12, EDIFACT, and TRADACOMS transactions. If can is selected, then the selected items in the table specify which transactions types the user can access. If can NOT is selected, then the selected items in the table specify which transaction types the user cannot access. If a non-accessible transaction type is contained within a tracked file, then the entire file will not be accessible to the user. This means the user cannot View or Email a copy of the file. The All and None buttons are used to select or clear all of the EDI transaction types.
User Group Application Settings Tab
The following describes the Application Settings tab. Note that this tab will not be present unless a database is chosen (see Applications) and at least one application is enabled under the Applications tree branch.
The left pane shows the list of applications that can be enabled or disabled for this user group. This list includes those configured for the Applications tree privilege under the VLNavigator Privileges tab for this user group. See User Group VLNavigator Privileges.
To enable or disable a feature, click the feature in the left pane and then select or clear Application enabled for User Group. Alternatively, you can right-click on the feature and select Enable or Disable.
