Understanding InfoPrint Manager Security

InfoPrint Manager Security, a feature that you administer through the SMIT, lets you protect your printing system by associating an Access Control List (ACL) with an InfoPrint Manager object or operation. An ACL is the list of users and groups who have permission to do something to or with an object. The ACL also refers to the type of permission.

Types of permission

In InfoPrint Manager, users can have three levels of permission: read, write, and delete. The levels provide these types of access:

For operations, the user can do the operation. For servers and queues, the user can view the attributes. If you restrict access to a server or queue, access to all objects contained by that server or queue is automatically restricted, even if the objects are not explicitly protected. For destinations, the user can view attributes and submit jobs to that destination.
