deleteedit3SecurityQrimp gives you many ways to control security and restrict who can see, access and change your data.

By default, the account administrator is the only one who will be able to change security settings. You can change this by giving permission to other [user groups] to perform update [operations] on the [Table Security] table. You can give them permission to see the table by editing your [Menus].

Administrators have automatic rights to:
<li>[Adding Users]</li><li>[User Groups]</li><li>[Assigning Users to Groups]</li><li>Change [Table Security]</li></ul>

deleteedit24Error MessagesWhen you are working with your Qrimp app, you may encounter error messages. The error messages will appear in red and should tell you what to do to correct the problem, if possible. Many of these occur if you are entering data that is not the correct type, or if your data model is not correct.

Sometimes you will see a warning at the top if you have just deleted a record. This may sometimes persist to a new table as you are navigating. Usually these types of warning messages will disappear if you refresh your browser or if you continue using your app as normal.

We will attempt to document the most common errors and warnings in this section.

If you come across blank pages or unexplained errors, please [contact us] or submit a Feedback blurb with a detailed explanation of what happened.

deleteedit13Table SecurityTable security lets you set permissions for each of your tables by user group (see also [User Groups]). You can set Create, Read, Update, and Delete ([CRUD]) access. Administrators can change security at any time.

<h2>Default Permissions</h2>
By default, new tables are only accessible to the Administrator and Developer groups. You must add permissions for other user groups. The User and Tester groups can read data, but not create, update, or delete it. <strong>The Anonymous (public/not logged in) group, and new user groups that you add cannot see anything unless you give them permission.</strong>

<h2>Adding Group Level Permissions to View a Table</h2>
To set which user groups can access a table, go to Develop > Manage Tables > Find your table > Click the "Group Security" link. Or go to your table and choose the Table Management sub-menu (if available).

From the table management page, click the link that says "Manage Group Security".

Toggle permissions by clicking the checkbox or circle with a line through it.

<img class="border" src="attachments/" />

<h2>Advanced: View Security Permissions for all Tables</h2>
To view all of your Table Security Records, go to Develop> Manage Tables > View System Tables > t_security > View.

Depending on the size of your system, you may see hundreds or thousands of records. To find a record use the [search] feature. <img class="noborder" align="absmiddle" src="/icons/crystal_project/32x32/actions/filefind.png">
deleteedit84Column Level SecurityYou can determine which [User Groups] have permission to see every field in every table. If you have recently added a field, you will need to set column security for your users to be able to see the new field.

First, you may wish to check that they have permission to see that table by checking the [Table Security].

To change column visibility, go to the table you want to change security for, then go to Admin > Manage Tables.

Find your table then click the link below it that says "column security".

<img class="border" src="attachments/" />

You will see a table listing all of your groups on the left hand side with the names of the columns along the top.

If there is a check mark at the intersection of the two fields, that user group can see that column.

<img class="border" src="/attachments/9b777dc0-271f-4eeb-9500-3f16d11b4821/ColumLevelSecurity1.png">
deleteedit1269Managing UsersTo manage users and user groups go to Admin > Manage Users.Security
deleteedit144Anonymous AccessBy default, data in your application is only visible to individuals with usernames and passwords. The default user group "Anonymous" is used when you want to make your data accessible to the public, such as for an online store, a blog, or a company website. (See also [User Groups].)

To allow your data to be visible on the internet, you must set each <a href="db.aspx?t=helptopics&id=252&vid=11">database table</a> as visible to the Anonymous user group by using [Table Security]. You must also make sure that anonymous users have permission to see each menu tab by setting up [Group Menu Visibility].
User Groups
deleteedit1279User Group SettingsOn the User Security Page you can allow or disable the following options by group:

<img src="attachments/">

Should this user group be allowed to write [HTML]? HTML fields can change the appearance, color, style, font and layout of your data.

Should this user group be allowed to write scripts, such as Javascript? Scripts should only be given to trusted users, as they can be used to alter your system.

<h2>Allow Edit CSS</h2>
Can this user group to edit Cascading Style Sheets?

<h2>EnableUploads </h2>
Can this user group upload attachments to your Qrimp app?

<h2>Show Export Options</h2>
Can this user group see [export options] to export data from your tables?

<h2>Show related data</h2>
Should the group see [related data]?

<h2>Default Start Page</h2>
The default start page is what a user sees when they first log in. If you do not change this setting, all users see the [Dashboard].

See [Change the Default Start Page]

<h2>Input Black List</h2>
If the user group has permission to enter [HTML], which characters can they not enter?
User Groups
deleteedit1300Add a User Group<span class="error"><em>Caution: If you add a user group, they will need permissions added manually to all tables and menus. They may also need permissions added to many [system tables] - portals (to see portals), queries, t_group_query, views etc. If any of this is done wrong, the user will not see things they should see.</em></span>

To add a new user group go to Admin > Manage Users.

Click the link on the top of the page that says "Manage Security Groups".

<img class="border" src="attachments/" />


Click the "Add New" button to add a new security group.

To edit the settings for an existing security group, click the edit icon.

<img class="border" src="attachments/" />
User Groups
deleteedit1343Users aren't receiving their temporary password emailQrimp sends many emails every day and sometimes those emails are blocked
by email settings at the recipient end. In this case, the user will not
receive their username and password email when you create their account.

The long-term solution is to add Qrimp's support email account to your
email filtering software's safe list. ConstantContact maintains a help
topic on <a href="">how to add safe senders in many different email programs</a>.

Sometimes the above step won't work or you need an administrator to help,
but in the meantime, you need to get your new users into the system. The
best way to do this is to follow our guide on <a href="//">How to reset a users password in Qrimp</a>.

IMPORTANT: When you click the Approve account in the final step, write down or
copy/paste the temporary password so you can share it with the new user
via email or in person.
Adding Users
deleteedit25Many-to-ManyA many-to-many relationship is a relationship between two <a href="db.aspx?t=helptopics&id=252&vid=11">database tables.</a> For example, a stuedent in university will have many teachers, and a teacher will have many students. The relationship between the two tables is a many-to-many relationship between students and teachers.

<h2>Adding a Many-to-Many</h2>
To add a many-to-many relationship first go to the table for which you'd like to create the relationship, then go to Develop > Add Many-to-Many.

At the top of the page, you'll see the table you selected, and a drop down list of other tables in your system. Select the table to which you'd like to add the relationship and then name the relationship. Usually something simple such as TeacherStudents or UserTasks is best.

Click create to add the relationship. You will see two links that allow you to view data in either of the tables.

<h2>View the Relationship</h2>
To view the relationship go to the detail view of any item in either of the two related tables. On the right hand side of the page, you will see a heading/link to the relationship. If there are related items, they will be listed below the link. There is also an add button so you can add new items.

<h2>Advanced - viewing all relationships in your system. </h2>
To see a list of all existing relationships, go to Develop > Many-to-Many.
