Interaction Administrator Help
Interaction Process Automation provides data-level security that allows each customer the flexibility to specify which users, workgroups, and/or roles can access each data variable.
If your company needs to track sensitive information as part of a process, you can use a security specification to grant access to only those users or workgroups who need to view that data.
You assign users or workgroups to a security specification to give them access to any data that is bound to that specification. If no security specification is assigned to a data variable, everyone has access to that data.
You can add and modify security specifications in Interaction Administrator, and then bind them to data variables in the Property tab in Interaction Process Automation Designer. You can also delete security specifications. This topic includes instructions for:
