The Access Management module is where new user profiles are created and access rights established. This module is part of the base Alinity V6 installation.
- Easier Interface
- User Templates
- Updated Auditing Functions
The module provides an easy-to-use interface that allows you to manage access rights from either a role-based perspective (who is in the group that can perform this action?) or from the perspective of the user and the roles they have been assigned to (what can this user do?). The module has also been upgraded to include reporting for both perspectives.
One of the most useful features is the ability to establish specific users as “templates” that can be applied to other users. For example, if you have a new staff person joining your group and you would like them to have the same access as someone else, just apply the original person’s roles as a template. You can still make refinements if there are minor differences.
Alinity V6 feature a robust user-session audit log. As an administrator, you can see the history of logins for any user ID, their IP addresses of origin and other information useful to investigate suspicious activity (if necessary). Along with these feature-based changes, the underlying security technology has been hardened against known attack types including SQL injection.
Like all modules in Alinity Version 6, the Access Management module is fully web-based and mobile-device compatible. No installation is necessary. All Alinity V6 modules run equally well on PCs, Macs, smart phones and tablets by applying responsive web design (RWD) technology that dynamically changes layouts to fit various screen sizes.
