Configure member security

You can enable specific security settings for secured entity definition member groups and members. You can assign the following permissions:

  • Read - the user group can view member groups as well as the entity members in the entity definition.

  • Write - the user group can update the values of the member groups as well as the entity members of the entity definition.

Note

Secured members are displayed on the Member security tab.

Important

If a taxonomy relation has no values, all users are given the Write permission, regardless of their user groups. To prevent this, the taxonomy relation must be mandatory as defined in the user group policies.
