Defining Stat Users

Before users can work in Stat, they must be defined in the User Maintenance table. This table contains all the information about the user that Stat requires.

User account security is controlled by the following user class rights:

The User Maintenance table is displayed in a standard maintenance window. To open this window, select Maintenance | Security Settings | User Maintenance, or select User Options | User Maintenance.

Included in this section are descriptions of the user password settings defined in the System table. The System table is described in the section, System Maintenance , but due to their relevance to Stat security, the user password settings are also addressed here.

Copying User Definitions

If you need to define a Stat user whose information closely resembles that of an existing user, you can save time by copying the definition of the existing user and editing the copy as needed. When you copy a user definition, all the information gets copied over, including working directories, access levels, and user class assignments.

Resetting Passwords

For non-LDAP enabled users, the Reset Password button resets their password. The user then receives an automatically generated email from Stat containing a temporary password and instructions to change their password at the next login or from the User Options window.

The User Access Information Window

The Access Information... button opens the User Access Information window. The window features tabs in which you can do the following:

Service Domain Access Tab

Grant users access to a service domain by assigning them to user classes for that particular service domain.

PS Options Tab (PeopleSoft only)

Define the PeopleSoft Operator IDs and passwords that the selected user will need to physically lock PeopleSoft proprietary objects.

User File Directories Tab

Define the selected user’s working file directory for each file type as well as the user’s default working directory.

Queue Assignment Tab

Add and remove the selected user from work queues.

Application Access Tab

Restrict a user’s access to only specified applications while working within certain service domains.

Object Type Access Tab

Restrict a user’s access to only specified object types while operating within a certain change management module and service domain.

Environment Access Tab

Restrict a user’s ability to migrate objects to only specified environments while operating within a certain change management module and service domain.

Server Access Tab

Restrict a user’s access to file servers when running pre and post migration steps.

Pre/Post Migration User Parameters Tab

Define public user-based parameters that can be included in the definition of post migration command steps.

Except for the PS Options and User File Directories tabs, each tab in the User Access Information window displays two lists of access rights. The right side shows all the access rights currently assigned to the user, while the left side shows a tree view of all the unassigned rights organized by service domain (except in the case of the File Server tab). Each group of unassigned rights displays the number of rights it contains. A bold number indicates that all the rights in the group are currently unassigned to the user, while no number indicates that all the rights are currently assigned to the user. The total number of access rights assigned and unassigned to a user is shown above each respective list. Double-click a group of unassigned rights to expand it, or use the Expand All button.
