    I have been asked to grant an end user full access to use IMDBB.  IMDBB is in the IF system code.  Without hard-coding a product line value, are there any global functions or security rules available that would secure the product line parameter to the user's 'DataArea/ID'? We are operating on 10.0.9 core, 10.0.6 apps.

    Hello,
    I'm not sure if this is what you're asking (and I'm not sure how IMDBB fits into it), but you can lock down the ProdLine for everything for a user by selecting that ProdLine in their PortalRole xml file.

    You could also put the Prodline on a user field in HR11 (which they can't change), and refer to that with a security rule. That avoids the hard-coding. Or you could put it in an existing Control Attribute for the user, or create a new attribute for holding the ProdLine.

    What that accomplish what you're needing to do?
    Call me if you wish!

    Regards,
    Dave

    Hi Dave
    Thank you so much for your thorough responses! After mulling over your suggestions (and having a restful weekend ) I found that I was overlooking something obvious. I managed to build a rule using the 'ProductLine' attribute for the user. Some of our users have the ability to pick and choose different product lines. I wanted to prevent those users from working within one product line (ie 'TEST') and adding a job that could potentially execute in another (ie 'PROD'). I had forgotten that the 'ProductLine' attribute actually changes when the user changes their selected product line. Thanks for stirring up the waters......
