Access Rights

Access Control List, or ACL.

The access right is the ability to see certain system objects and carry out authorized actions on them. In the first place, access rights are applied to the macro objects of the system such as accounts (resources), units, users, unit groups, and retranslators. Read more about CMS Manager here.

The access rights are defined primarily by the service manager in the CMS Manager interface. However, some features can be available to the end user. Rightholders can be any users of the system including managers and end users of any level.

Rights are assigned to each user individually when creating or editing it on the Access tab. An alternative way to set access rights is through the object properties dialogs on the Access tab.

Types of Rights

The set of standard rights that can be applied to any type of macro object includes:

  • View item and its basic properties
  • View detailed item properties
  • Manage access to this item
  • Delete item
  • Rename item
  • View custom fields
  • Manage custom fields
  • View admin fields
  • Manage admin fields
  • Edit not mentioned properties
  • Change icon
  • Query messages or reports
  • Edit ACL propagated items
  • Manage item log
  • View and download files
  • Upload and delete files

In addition, for each element type, there are special rights — a proper list of allowed/forbidden actions which are individual for this particular type of objects. For instance, unit ACL includes a special right to create, edit and delete service intervals, user ACL includes the right to act as a given user, resource ACL — the right to create, edit, and delete geofences, etc. See more information about special rights for each type of object in the following sections:

On the Access tab of every item, the rights are divided into two sections. The left section displays standard rights, and it is the same for any type of the object. The right section contains special rights, and its contents depend on the type of the element to which access is set.


It is important to maintain the hierarchy when assigning rights:

  • The user-creator has full rights to the created item, which can be limited only by the user of the higher level.
  • It is impossible to give a user more rights to an item than the creator of this user has on the same item.
  • A user can transfer the rights to other users, but no more than he has himself and only if he has transfer rights.
