Web Security Administration – Administration

By Delmar Dehn, Senior Product Manager

Web Security Administration for Infor Landmark (aka Web Security Administration) is now available! Web Security Administration is a powerful tool to configure and extend the roles and rules-based security policies for any Infor Landmark technology platform-based application. For example, Web Security Administration can be used to assign security rules to security classes, which govern tasks that can be performed, and then assign security classes to roles. Roles are collections of security privileges that provide authorization for common business user functions. The Infor Financials & Supply Management application, Infor HR Talent application, and Infor Payroll application all deliver pre-defined roles with associated security policies for common business user functions. The Web Security Administration tool can be used to tailor delivered security rules, security classes, and roles to extend the security model to match customers’ specific security requirements. Web Security Administration changes take effect in near real-time in the production environment without taking the system down. Web Security Administration operates from within a web browser and introduces many new features and capabilities.

Since Web Security Administration can be used to tailor and extend Infor Landmark technology platform-based application security policies in so many ways, Infor will be posting here on the Infor Technology Blog a series of Web Security Administration videos describing and demonstrating the tool’s noteworthy features. The video demonstrations are hosted and narrated by some of Infor’s foremost Web Security Administration subject matter experts.

The Web Security Administration video series includes:

Part 1:  Introduction
Part 2: Security Class Configuration
Part 3: User Management
Part 4: System Management
Part 5: Author Management
Part 6: Administration
Part 7: LPL Viewer

In this post’s part 6 video, Pamela Schultz, Principal Learning Consultant, Infor, introduces the administration section within Web Security Administration. She discusses the administration components and shows how to create a role group that is used for distribution of an Infor Landmark embedded report. Pamela explains how the administration section provides management of security challenges, security exports, and security cache. She provides a quick description of the administration components’ functions including security logger to access security logs, security classes to import and export security classes, permission BODs (Busines Object Documents), security reports, role groups, and additionally security cache analyzer which allows you to explore or clear security cache for a variety of security components. Pamela demonstrates how to create a role group and then utilize the role group for distribution of an Infor Landmark embedded report. She creates an actor report to show all disabled actors and then distribute the report to actors that have the admin role or the direct supervisor role. Pamela concludes by recommending pertinent Infor Education training courses. Be sure to watch for future Web Security Administration videos.
