Understand workspaces, roles, and privileges in SystemLink to organize your data and
tailor SystemLink Web Application to different types of users.
- Automatic data encapsulation—The process of data being stored in the same workspace as the system that produces it.
Along with defining roles and privileges, this process helps keep data
organized and ensures users only see the data relevant to them.
- Workspace—Grouping of systems, data, and other resources that server administrators define to
control how users interact with SystemLink. A workspace also contains
users assigned to roles. When systems in a workspace produce data, the
same workspace automatically stores that data.
- Default workspace—
Workspace created when SystemLink installs. The following types of
data can exist only in the default workspace:
- Data from clients using AMQP
- Data from pre-2020 R1 clients using HTTP
- OPC UA and Cloud Connector sessions
- File moving rules
- Health tag data
- Role—Set of privileges you want to assign to one or more users. Workspaces usually contain
multiple roles. You can use the same role in multiple workspaces.
- User—Person with access to some part of SystemLink. Users can have multiple roles in multiple
workspaces. Users can use the SystemLink Web Application and SystemLink
REST APIs to access the systems and data within the workspace they
- Privilege—Action a user can do when using a SystemLink application or
- Mapping—Connection you specify between a user and a role.
