Questions About User Account Administration
« on: August 08, 2019, 08:56:32 am »
Greetings,

EA will become the tool to manage the organization's enterprise architecture. I'd like to know how are user accounts managed in v14 Server-based repository?

For example, user groups must have full access to package based on the group's department & view access to packages external to the department.

Are these rights managed at the Server level (i.e., the department's user account directory)? Or, at the application level?
If the latter, where can I find info about EA user account administration?

Thanks

If you are using a database repository, it is possible to enable Package Level security, although I am not sure if this feature available for all editions, in Sparx EA. To do this you need to obtain a key from the Sparx Systems download page(s) to enable it.

Package level security uses groups which work on a per repository basis.

Also Sparxs Systems uses Sparxian to surround this feature with some mastique. It refers to applying and releasing locks.
  • Apply a lock = check out
  • Release a lock = check in

After applying Package level security to a repository, all pages are read only but are not locked. To edit them they have to be locked.

Edit - Sparx EA is capable of reading/importing active directory accounts.
