Per-user access report

  • Create an Issue
  • Cancel

Hi,

we are in the process of deploying RDM to departments and teams and I'm wondering if it would be possible to generate a report for a specific user to see what this user has access to. The Permissions report doesn't meet the requirement. We would need something that would analyse the user's roles to determine access and give us the detail of which permissions the user has on entries (not only view, add and delete, but also see password, etc.)

As users can change teams and departments, it will be required that access can correctly analysed so that old permissions don't remain when the user moves.

Thanks!

Hello,

Sorry for the delay of my response.

We have a new session type that should accomplish what you are looking for. In the New entry window, inside the Macro/Script/Tool section, select Report.
2018+12+19+12+38+41

Then, in the Type section, select Custom Field Report.
2018+12+19+12+39+27

You should be able to build a report with the needed information's. If you need more help, please let us know what you would like to include in this report.

Best regards,



Jeff Dagenais

Hi Jeff,

thank you for the info. This feature looks nice. I suppose I need to enter the field names in the Fields list ? What are/How do I determine the names of the fields I want to look up form the Permissions section of entries ?

Can you give an example ? If I wanted to create a report that lists all entries for which user xyz has View access ?

Thanks and happy New Year!

Hello,

Here is how you can use the Report entry type using Custom Field Report option.

You need to provide all column names in the Fields section. One name per line.

Then, you need to assign them in the Script section like the following sample.

Hi,

I tried this, but once I'm done and select Execute, nothing happens.

Thanks.

Hello,

Could you please try the following report? The Permissions Report.rdm file attached to this post contains the Report entry.
Please let me know if this one works in RDM.


Best regards,

Hi Erica,

this works fine. Something was probably missing in my setup. I'll study how this one is made to see what was missing in mine.

Thanks!
