Completing the Ownership Tab

Only members of the security groups specified in the Ownership window can edit, copy, or disable a specific portlet. If a security group is disabled or the System: Edit Portlet Definition access grant is removed, that group no longer has access to the portlet.

If no ownership groups are associated with the entity, the entity is considered global and any user with the proper edit access grant for the entity can edit, copy, or disable it. Users with the System: Ownership Override access grant can access configuration entities even if the user is not a member of one of the ownership groups and does not have the specific edit access grant.

Note: For more information concerning access grants, refer to the Security Model Guide and Reference.

To complete (or update) the Ownership tab in the Data Source : <Data Source Name> window:

  2. Click Save to commit your changes. Click OK to save your changes and close the window.
