Chapter 5 Setting up security
Rockwell Automation Publication VIEWSE-UM006K-EN-E
If you prefer to set up permissions by assigning user accounts to the
selected security code, select Action.
3. Click Add, select the user or group account to add, and then click OK.
Tip: If you are setting up security for a network application,
you must select a computer account with the user
account, before you can click OK.
4. In the Runtime Security list, select the account you just added.
5. Select the Allow check box beside the FactoryTalk View Security
Codes that you want to explicitly allow for the selected account.
To select all of codes A to P, select the Allow check box beside All
Actions, or the check box beside the FactoryTalk View Security Codes
6. Select the Deny check box beside the FactoryTalk View Security
Codes that you want to explicitly deny for the selected account.
Tip: You can also deny a security code by clearing the Allow
check box. If you do this, keep in mind that an explicit
Deny always takes precedence, even over an explicit
Allow. This is important if the account you are setting up
security for belongs to more than one group.
For example, if John Doe belongs to one group that
allows codes ABC, and to another group that explicitly
denies code B, then John Doe will only allow codes A
and C. For more information, see Understanding
inherited permissions on page 118.
7. Repeat steps 3 to 6, for each user or group account you want to set up
with Runtime Security.
To add users and assign security codes to them
Only users assigned the necessary FactoryTalk View security codes can run
secured commands, open secured graphic displays, or write to secured HMI
tags at run time.
In this example, three user groups are added to the Runtime Security
accounts list, and given the following security codes:
The Supervisors group is allowed security codes A through P.
The Operators group is allowed security codes B, C, and E.
The Visitors groups is allowed Security B.
Then, the following HMI project components are given security codes:
