Configuring Object Security

Security Note:

To edit object security, your security group will need one of the following permissions set in Group Administration for that object type:

  • Admin: 10.3. Set Location Object Security
  • Admin 11.5 Set Resource Object Security
  • Admin 13.1 Set Organization Object Security
  • Admin 19.2 Set Report Security

Object Security determines who is allowed to view, edit, copy, and delete objects. Locations, organizations, reports, and resources all use the same steps to configure their object security. 

Looking to Configure Event Security?

Events have additional configuration options that other objects don't have. For information on configuring event object security, see: Configuring Object Security for Events, Folders, and Cabinets
