Working with ACLs

You can create, edit, and remove ACL policies and rolemaps using the VersionVault Explorer.

Before you begin

You must be connected to the VOB server (in the case of a dynamic view) or the VersionVault WAN server (if you are using a web view or automatic view) to work with ACLs policies.

About this task

If access control list (ACL) authorization is enabled, the identities and protection modes for some object types are administered through policies, which define permissions for roles; and rolemaps, which map the roles to principals. You administer policies and rolemaps in VersionVault Explorer by using the ACLs features that appear under the VOB node in the VersionVault Navigator.


To work with ACLs in the VersionVault Explorer:
  1. In the VersionVault Navigator view, locate the VOB where you want to work with access control lists.
  2. Click the plus sign (+) next to the VOB name to expand the node.
  3. Click ACLs.
    Click on Policies if you want to create, edit, or remove a policy. Click on Rolemaps if you want to create, edit, or remove a rolemap.
