How does the "admin restrictions" function work in REACT ?
The admin_restrictions file is located in the /hekimian/react-2001/system/data directory.
It is referenced by the gui when changing a user’s login capabilities.
Admin gui control bar -> Edit->Users->Logins
The “Set Admin Ability” check box controls the restriction of a user’s
. The list in the window below the check box is from the admin_restrictions file. Pick whichever restrictions are appropriate to apply.
In the following example, a user id called “
“ was created and the admin restriction called “USER” is applied. Once the user id is associated with the restriction of “USER”, it will be restricted from all administrative functions found in the list for “USER.”
Note that restrictions for “USER” in the admin_restrictions file will restrict “klloyd-r” FROM the following:
Editing Test Resources,
Editing super concentrator
users-> test groups
When logging in as “
”, the above are grayed out in the admin menus. Note, the user will still need to be given Admin ability in userlimitations in order for the restrictions to work.
admin_restrictions file for USER:
# Restricted Admin Level "User"
User = EDIT|TEST RESOURCES
User = EDIT|SUPER CONCENTRATOR
User = EDIT|USERS|LIMITATIONS
User = EDIT|USERS|TEST GROUPS
After logging in as klloyd-r note that Test Resources and Super Concentrator are grayed out:
