Security groups

No matter what size organization you work in, manually adding every user to every ACL can be a time-consuming process. To reduce some of the work, you can create security groups, groups of users who need to have the same levels of permission for the same objects. You use the name of the security group like a user ID; instead of adding each user ID to an ACL, you add the group name. For example, if you want all ten of your print operators to be able to perform the same operations, create a group and name it operators. Then, add operators to the appropriate ACLs.

When you install InfoPrint Manager, three security groups are created by default:

  • acl_admin

    Users who have authority to manage security by changing access control lists and groups. The default members are administrator and the user who was logged on when InfoPrint Manager was installed.

  • admin

    Users who have administrator authority. The default members are administrator and the user who was logged on when InfoPrint Manager was installed.

  • oper

    Users who have operator authority. The default member is administrator.
