As a system administrator, specify which parts of Systemlink different users can access
through workspaces, roles, and privileges.
NI SystemLink Web Application uses role-based access control (RBAC) to specify
privileges for systems, data, and analysis routines in SystemLink. These privileges
determine which people or systems can access resources, what they can do with those
resources, and what areas they can access.
Complete the following tasks to
control how different users interact with SystemLink.
If users will access SystemLink using LDAP credentials,
set up LDAP authentication for SystemLink.
If users will access SystemLink with their existing
credentials, identity, and access levels in your organization, configure SystemLink to authenticate using OpenID
Create a workspace. If you will only need one
workspace for all users, you can use the default workspace instead. Refer to the
RBAC conceptual overview for more information about
the default workspace.
Creating a workspace in addition to the default workspace requires a
SystemLink Advanced Server license.
Create roles and define privileges
for each role.
Assign roles to users.
Archive workspaces you're no longer using.
