Privileges allow users to perform certain tasks within the Metasys system. Administrators set up privileges to determine which actions each user is authorized to perform. A privilege is a group of related user actions (for example, the Intervene privilege includes actions such as disable, enable, release, and reset).
Privileges are divided into two types: category-based and system-based. Category-based privileges apply only to the categories of the Metasys system items or objects for which the user is explicitly authorized (such as General, Security, and Lighting). System privileges apply to the Metasys system as a whole and include actions such as discard events and manage audit history.
- Privileges can be assigned by going to in SCT.
- Changes to privileges do not take effect until the next time the user logs in to the system. For example, if users are currently logged in, the changes you make to their accounts do not affect their privileges until the users log out and log in again.
