InterSystems: The power behind what matters   

Control what each user is permitted to use, view, or alter.
Background Information
Authorization is the process of controlling what each user can use, view, or alter in the application.
Available Tools
Role-based authorization model
InterSystems uses a role-based authorization model; roles carry permissions, and users are assigned to roles. A user then has the cumulative permissions provided by all the roles to which the user belongs.
As a programmer, you are responsible for including the appropriate security checks within your code to make sure that a given user has permission to perform a given task. You can also temporarily give a user permissions for a specific task, using an option called role escalation.
For information, see the Security Administration Guide. Also see the Security Tutorial.
Availability: All namespaces.
