InterSystems: The power behind what matters   

Work with roles, resources, applications, SSL configurations, and other security items programmatically (create, manipulate, export, and so on).
Background Information
For an introduction to security in InterSystems IRIS, see About InterSystems Security in the Security Administration Guide.
Typically you create and modify security items via the Management Portal.
Available Tools
%SYSTEM.Security class
Provides security-related utility methods. These are as follows:
Availability: All namespaces.
Security package
Provides classes you can use to define and manipulate security items programmatically. Typically, you would use these to define resources, roles, and possibly starter user IDs as part of installation. Classes in this package include:
Availability: %SYS namespace.
Security routines
InterSystems provides several routines that you can use as an alternative to the Management Portal. See Using Character-based Security Management Routines in the Security Administration Guide.
Availability: Most are available only in the %SYS namespace.
The special variable $SYSTEM is bound to the %SYSTEM package. This means that instead of ##class(%SYSTEM.class).method(), you can use $SYSTEM.class.method().
