Updating properties of a group

You can update the properties that define the characteristics of a group.

When you update a security group, be aware that:

  • Some actions require authorization to do other actions or edit certain properties:
    To do this action To this object type A group must be able to do this action to that object type And edit these properties of that object type
    Add Any Edit Properties All required properties
    Copy Any Edit Properties All required properties
    Edit Properties Any View Properties  
    Make jobs match printer Job Edit Properties Scheduling properties
    Print Again Job Edit Properties Input data stream, Workflow, Restart steps, Stop when entering phase
    Process Again Job Edit Properties Job copies, Requested printer
    Schedule Job Edit Properties Scheduling properties
  • If you prohibit a group from adding objects, you might also want to prohibit that group from importing objects.

    Important:
  • You cannot change the properties of a group that Ricoh ProcessDirector provides. Copy the group and change the properties of the copy.

To update the properties of a group:

  1. Click the Administration tab.
  2. In the left pane, click Security Groups.
  3. Right-click the group you want to update and select Properties.
  4. To change the Group description property, type the new value in the entry field.
  5. Edit the actions that the group can do to objects:
    1. In the Object types list, select an object type.
    2. To prohibit an action, clear the check box for the action.
    3. To allow an action, select the check box for the action.
  6. Edit the object properties that the group can view and edit:
    1. In the Object types list, select an object type.
    2. To restrict the group from viewing a property, clear the property check box in the View column.
    3. To let the group view a property, select the property check box in the View column.
    4. To restrict the group from editing a viewable property, clear the property check box in the Edit column.
    5. To let the group edit a property, select the property check box in the Edit column.
  7. Change the Default Main page view value to the saved view you want the users in the group to use.
  8. Click OK.
    Note:
  • If you try to update properties when Properties notebooks for several objects are open in different browser tabs, the Ricoh ProcessDirector user interface can freeze. If this happens, close all tabs and open one Properties notebook at a time in the same tab and window as the Main page or Administration page.
