In Build and up, administrators can configure access to the tool buttons on the EQuIS Professional Ribbon for ALS users by setting viewer permissions in Enterprise for the related Modules. Existing ALS roles created prior to EQuIS receive viewer permission on all Ribbon Tools in EQuIS Professional upon upgrade. Newly created ALS roles will not have any permissions automatically assigned.


Granting Viewer permission (or Editor/Owner) enables the tool buttons (“ProBtn” modules) only. Any additional permission requirements for the tool functionality remain and must be addressed separately (e.g., for Report Publisher and DQM tools).


Similarly, denying permission on the ProBtn modules disables the tool buttons only. An administrator must address any additional options for access separately. For example, note that with Forms access, users may view certain data tables, with or without permission granted to the “ProBtn: Tables” module.



Denying permission will not disable the buttons for users who inherit Owner permissions (such as ALS administrator users).


Without permissions for a tool, the button is disabled and an “Insufficient Permissions” tooltip will display. If the tool button permissions are met but licensing required, the tooltip on the disabled button reads “Sufficient permissions but a license is required”.


The Professional Tools modules, listed below, are of two types: tab sections (i.e. grouped tools) and individual tools.
