Extracting Perms, Assoc ROLE w/ APS OBJECTS

Extracting Perms, Assoc ROLE w/ APS OBJECTS

Extracting Perms, Assoc ROLE w/ APS OBJECTS

Hi folks,

I have a ... "challenge" that I'm trying to overcome.  I am trying to design a report to run against the Seagate Info APS that will give me the directory structure and reports, with the groups and permissions.  I have a report that will group by directory structure with the individual reports in the details.  I have been in and out of the tables in the APS and while I see several potential linkages to get some form of user/group display, I haven't decoded any rights/permissions data.  I have the Groups, Users, and a GroupUser table.  I have RIIGHTROLES and SECRIGHTS tables, but I am stuck on decoding this.  I ASSuME that I can go from the GROUPUSERS:Group_ID to the SECRIGHTS:PRINCIPAL and that the resulting SECRIGHTS:SECRIGHT field will be a list of the rights for the group, but...

How do I tie the individual objects (Directories and reports) to either the ROLE or the GROUP so I can denote the permissions?  Whew.

If I can just associate a ROLE w/ the object, that will _probably_ be enough... we only have a couple of entities that use the <USER_DEFINED> permissions -- against my preferences... the permissions just haven't been codified.

Any ideas?

Key words:  APS, Seagate Info, Permissions, Roles, Groups, Reports
