Managing security of an object

When an object is created, only the administrator who created the object and the superadministrator have access to this object. To provide other administrators registered in the database with access to it, they must be added in the Security tab of the respective object with the type of access defined. If no access is specifically defined, they will not be able to see or access it. Access can be added directly in the Security tab or it can be added through the Security Profile of the respective administrator.

The table of the Security tab displays the following information about the administrators and administrator groups with access to the specific object:
