IBM Datacap Web Client Help            

Manage users and permissions in the Administrator > Groups tab

The Administrator > Groups tab defines Datacap user groups and the permissions that are assigned to each group. Individual users that are assigned to a group inherit the group permissions.

Important: The settings that a user inherits through group membership are not displayed on the Users tab. For example, you can enable Datacap Web Client for the group and then look at the privileges for a member of the group. The Datacap Web Client option might not be checked, but the user can still access Datacap Web Client. For individual users, you can add permissions to those permissions that are inherited from the group, but you cannot take away inherited permissions. Also, all users are automatically assigned to a default group called Everyone. You cannot remove this group, but you can remove individual users from the group.


To create a group, click New. Datacap opens the Selected group details pane where you can specify the options for the group that includes the following options.
  • Privileges: Define the tabs that users in this group can access, and the rights each user can perform on a tab, such as delete a batch, change a status, and enable logging.
  • Permissions: Define the tasks that users in this group can complete.
  • Users: Define the users in the group


Click Copy to make a copy of the selected group. Datacap names the copied group Copy of <group>. You can change the name and details in the Selected group details pane.


Click Remove to remove the selected group. You cannot remove the default group, Everyone.
