Enabling and Disabling Role-Based Administration

Enabling Role-Based Administration

Simply defining one or more users and assigning them roles does not automatically enable the role-based administration feature. The program allows you to predefine several users without actually enabling the feature. You will not be able to enable role-based administration, however, without having at least one user assigned to the Administrator role.

To enable role-based administration:

  1. Select Manage > User Role Assignment.

The User Role Assignment dialog is displayed.

  1. Enable the Roles Enabled check box.

You must have defined at least one user with the Administrator role in order to enable role-based administration. See Assigning User Roles for detailed information.

For example:

  1. Click OK.

Role-based administration takes effect the next time the program is launched.

Disabling Role-Based Administration

To disable role-based administration:

  1. Clear the Roles Enabled check box.

  2. Click OK.

After disabling role-based administration, the next time that Shavlik Protect is launched all users will have full access to the program. Any users that are defined in the User Role Assignment dialog will remain but their role assignments will be ignored.
