Toad Intelligence Central provides two types of folders for storing objects: secured folders and non-secured folders. Secured folders have visibility (sharing) manage, and publishing privileges assigned to them. Non-secured folders do not.
An Intelligence Central server can have one or both types of folders. An Administrator configures which user role/roles are allowed to create secured folders and which types of folders can be created. For a description of the advantages of using secured folders, additional rules that apply to secured folders, and instructions for configuring Folder Security for a server, see the Toad Intelligence Central Deployment Guide.
Folder Types in Intelligence Central
|Non-secured folder—Visible to all users.|
Secured folder—Secured are special folders in Intelligence Central and are visible only to users with which the folder has been shared. A secured folder can be managed by users with manage privileges to the folder. Users with the publish privilege can publish to the folder.
Users with the Administrator role can view and manage all secured folders.
You can use the Object Explorer to create a new folder. A folder can also be created at the time an object is published.
To create a new folder
In the Object Explorer, select a folder to serve as the parent folder.
To create a folder at the root level, select the No folder assigned folder.
To create a secured folder, select Set as Secured Folder.
(Secured folder) After a secured folder is created, you can then modify the sharing/visibility and manage privileges, if necessary. Initially, only the folder creator and users with the Administrator role have visibility and manage privileges to the folder.
Secured folders are special folders in Intelligence Central. Secured folders have sharing/visibility, manage, and publish privileges; non-secured folders do not.
Secured Folder Characteristics
After a secured folder is created, users with manage privileges to the folder can alter the sharing and manage options at any time.
To specify sharing and manage privileges for objects in non-secured folders, see Specify Sharing and Manage Privileges for Objects.
To specify sharing/visibility and manage options for a secured folder
Note: The sharing and manage options you specify for a secured folder are applied to all objects in the folder.
After specifying users (and groups) with which to share the folder, you can grant manage privileges. Select the check box in the Manage column for each user allowed to manage the folder and its objects.
Select the check box in the Publish column for each user allowed to publish to this folder.
Review the following additional options.

|Add Active Directory User||
Click to add a user from an Active Directory domain. See Add Active Directory User or Group for more information.
Special rules apply when you move an object into or out of a secured folder.
Users with Manage privileges can do the following (unless the object is locked):
