Updating the content of partitions

You can control the visibility of entities to users in your system by adding or removing entities from the partitions these users are authorized to access.

What you should know

When you put related entities, such as cardholders and credentials, into different partitions, users that are not authorized to access all the partitions involved may not have all the access rights they need to perform their tasks. To simplify the partition configuration process, when you add or remove entities from a partition, the system automatically adds or removes their related entities from that partition. The common sense rules applied by the system are as follows:

To update the content of a partition:

  1. From the Config Tool home page, open any administration task, and select a tab that shows an entity tree.
    If the partitions are not visible, click Show partitions () in the Search box or press F4.
  2. Select the partition you want to modify, and click the Properties tab.
    The current contents of the partition are displayed in the Members list.
  3. Do either one of the following:
    • To add entities to the partition, click Add (), select the entities from the Search dialog box, and then click Select.
    • To remove entities from the partition, select the entities from the Members list, and then click Remove ().
    TIP: Alternatively, you can change the content of partitions directly from the entity tree, using drag-and-drop to move entities, and Ctrl+drag-and-drop to copy entities.
All changes are immediately applied.
