User Security

The Access Control tab is used to configure access control/authorization for core CapStorm applications (CopyStorm, CopyStorm/Medic, CopyStorm/Restore, and CopyStorm/Director). The Access Control editor table can be used to add new and edit existing CapStorm application users and assign pre-defined roles to users. These pre-defined roles will determine the level of access (available functionality) granted to the assigned user when using the aforementioned supported applications.

Step 1: Add a User

Click on the “Add User…” button.

This will open a pop-up dialog where you can enter the following:

  • Username — a unique username.
  • Password — a strong password.
  • Role — Three pre-defined roles are available:
    • Super Admin — a top-level administrative role. A user with this role can perform any operation in any application including configuration of Access Control.
    • Admin — a slightly restricted administrative role. A user with this role can perform any operation in any application except configuration of Access Control.
    • Configurator — a user with this role can edit configurations for all applications except CopyStorm/Director, but cannot invoke any of the applications (cannot run jobs).
  • Production Enabled — this checkbox determines whether the user will be granted Access against Production Salesforce Instances.
    • The “Production Enabled” check-box will enable/disable any operation that is allowed by the assigned role against a production database or Salesforce org. For example:
      • A user that has been assigned the “Configurator” role but has the “Production Enabled” check-box unchecked cannot edit a production configuration.

Then click the “Save” button to add the user.

Step 3: Save Changes

When you are finished making changes to the Access Control configuration, click the “Save” button at the bottom of the editor table. A pop-up dialog will appear where you can validate and save or cancel all staged changes.

You can also undo all staged changes by clicking the “Cancel” button.
