Security diagnostics tool

As a superuser, you can use the security diagnostics tool to determine the permissions that a dedicated user has for an entity by entering the entity ID and the user name on the Security diagnostics page. The Security diagnostics tool takes into consideration both direct policies and indirect policies:

  • Direct policy: permissions a user receives when they are indicated as a collaborator for the entity (for example, a collection, a project).

  • Indirect policy: permissions a user inherits from a user group.

To use the security diagnostics tool:

  1. On the menu bar, click Manage .

  2. On the Manage page, click Security diagnostics.

  3. In the Entity ID field, enter the ID for the entity you want to verify.

  4. Click Choose user.

  5. In the Choose user dialog box, search for and select the user you are interested in and then click Select.

  6. Click Check: the diagnostic is ready.
