Managing administrative tags

Top  Previous  Next

Administrative tags may be used to restrict the data within a module that an administrative user may have access to.  For example, I may need to grant an administrative user access to the Users module but limit their visibility to those users within a specific geographic region.  This can be accomplished by creating an administrative Tag, tagging those users in desired region with specified tag, assigning tag to a Role and then assigning role to an administrative user.

Tagging data


Many types of data may be tagged. These include Triggers, Users, Groups, Groups, Network Storage, Directory Monitors, Drop Zones, Contacts and more.  You may tag an object during creation or while editing an object.  The example below demonstrates tagging a Contact with the Tag Northwest.  This will limit visibility of this Contact to those administrators who are assigned a Role that has a Tag of Northwest.
