to configure the user permissions, you first create the different Roles, and then assign these roles to the different users. In the roles, you give permission to the different objects (read, write etc). There ar some basic Roles predefined, that either work for you, or which you can use as a base. I think there is a tool somewhere, that helps you define the access for the user, but I don’t remember, where to find it at the moment.
Another approach, that we sometimes use in Version 4, is to create different Navigation Panes, and then assign the user only those Navigation Panes, that he should have access to. But this will still give users access to things, that you might not want them to see, if they are smart enough.
If you are in the Navigation Pane Designer, you do a right click on the Menu you want to assign, and select “Assign users”. A Form will pop up, where you can select the users, that you want to have access to this Menu.
