What is it ?
Field Level Security allows you to activate portions of the
Stamina Software Advanced Security System that allow you to
easily control or specify who has access to what information
within the system, allowing you to enable or disable access
to information down to the level of an individual field on
a process screen.
does this mean to me ?
Information is probably the most valuable corporate
resources that any organization possesses, and by
providing a mechanism to deliver the information that
individual users require in order to perform their
normal day to day activities in a timely and efficient
you want people to have ready access to the information
they need in order to perform their work, you don’t
want people to be able to access key information that
example, it may be desirable to allow a clerk to access
payroll information in order to maintain employee
names and addresses, but you would not necessarily
want this person to be able to see, or modify, the
pay rates applicable to each employee.
is one obvious application of the field level security
capability of the Advanced Security System that is
supplied with all stamina software solutions.
level security can also be applied to less critical
information to ensure that changes are not accidentally
made to important information, or to police the fact
that information is only changed by key, authorized
applying a password to a field you limit the ability
to change the information in the protected field to
those select people who have been authorized to make
changes, by virtue of the fact that they know the
specific write levels may be set (combined with authorization
codes in hyper-sensitive environments) so that authorized
people have a write level sufficient to change, or
write to the field, people further down the chain
may still be able to read or see the information,
while those at the lower levels of your corporate
structure may not even have a write level sufficient
to even see the contents of a field.
combined with security profiles you have an effective
shield to protect your valuable corporate information.
does it work ?
Field level security is maintained via a simple menu
item, FIELDSEC, which displays the discrete fields
associated with a nominated process, and allows you
to set individual read & write levels, necessary
authority codes for access or simply passwords. Importantly,
these security measures can be varied from entity
Stamina Software solution then looks at these security
files when a process is running, comparing access
requirements of a field to those of the current user
to determine if information should be displayed or
