Servoy allows users to quickly set up user groups and enable multilevel security access to solutions. This chapter describes how to assign security settings at the solution, form, and table level.
Note: For information on creating user groups, visit the chapter on Defining User and Group Security. Servoy also supports database security (enforced by the database) via the Servoy database server connection. For details, consult the documentation on your database server.
Servoy allows developers to create login forms/solutions (see Working with Solutions) to allow authenticated access to an application or solution. Once the login solution is created, it can be added to a solution via the Properties view.
To add security features to a solution:
Security settings can be specified at the group level for an entire form or for selected form elements via the Form Editor Security subtab (see image below).
The left column lists available user groups, and the right table lists the form itself as the first item, followed by the form elements.
Note: Elements must be named (i.e., the "name" property must be specified) for them to be included in the table.
Servoy allows developers to easily set table-level security via the Security subtab of the Table Editor. Groups can be assigned either implicit or explicit security settings (see image below).
