Creating normalization rules to set row-level permissions

This feature sets row-level permissions (read and write) for specified classes and, along with Remedy AR System qualifications specific instances. For more information, see Normalization and instance permissions.

Before you begin

In the Dataset Configurations page, you must select a required data set and enable the Instance feature so that the Normalization Engine can apply the row-level permission rules to the selected data set. For more information, see Configuring normalization settings for datasets

To create a normalization rule for row-level permissions

ActiveClick to activate the rule so that the Normalization Engine can apply the rule on the data sets.
PrecedenceEnter a value to determine the rule's execution order. The value can be 0 to 9999999, both inclusive, with higher numbers determining a higher priority. If more than one rule applies to an instance, the Normalization Engine applies the rules sequentially from the highest precedence value to the lowest, until a match is found.
