Security Policy Selection

In order to use the security functions of the software, an initial security policy has to be selected. The security policy manages all users that have access to the software and controls their individual rights to use certain functions of the application. The following security policies are available:

  • No Security Policy (default setting)
    The 'No Security Policy' is the default setting of the software. All security functions will disabled and the software acts just as a regular application.

  • 'By Software' Security Policy
    The security functions are managed by the application itself. An administrator user manages all user and data access settings. This policy is favorable for standalone installations.

  • 'By Windows' Security Policy
    The applications user management is directly linked to the windows operating system. In order to have access to the application the user needs to have a valid windows user account for the local machine. Users may also be retrieved from a LDAP-server.

Security policies can always be changed at a later point in time!
The initially chosen security policy is not permanent. The administrator may change security policy settings later on or may switch off the security settings. All security settings for a chosen policy will be saved and may be reactivated again.

The security policy selection is the first step in setting up the softwares security system and the user will be guided by the Security Policy Wizard. Please review the chapters "Software Security Policy Wizard" and "Windows Security Policy Wizard" for a detailed description of the setup process.

After the initial security policy selection the security setup may be completed by using the following functions:
