EQuIS Professional Tools Access
Copyright © 2019 EarthSoft, Inc • Modified: 31 May 2019
Access to the tool buttons on the EQuIS Professional Ribbon may be configured for ALS users by setting viewer permissions in Enterprise for the related modules. By default, ALS roles inherit permission to all Ribbon Tools in EQuIS Professional.
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).
•Denying permission will not disable the buttons for users who inherit Owner permissions (e.g. ALS administrator users).
•Denying permission to the Reports and Tables buttons will not remove Professional access via pre-existing Favorites. This is a known issue with improvements pending.
•Granting permission to any one of the Forms, Reports or Tables buttons will allow the user access to the other features via the Open Dialog form buttons. This is a known issue with improvements pending.
When a user does not have permissions for a tool, the button will be 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.
