The Access Control pull-down from the Ribbon Bar allows users to have limited or elevated permissions to the JAMS Client GUI and Server.



Global access throughout the JAMS GUI can be granted from one of two Configuration values, GrantAdministratorsBypass and GrantBypassGroup.

GrantAdministratorsBypass is utilized to automatically allow any Active Directory Administrator full access to the client - this is often times changed to False and an Administrative group (i.e CORP\JAMSAdmins) is supplied within the GrantBypassGroup setting. This ensures that only users defined within this group, are given full rights within the JAMS Client.
