Setting Protections

If you maintain machine registrations for other users, or if someone else maintains machine registrations for you, you can add or change the list of people who can view and edit the information and options for the machines to which you have access.

To view, edit or change the list of people with access to your information, click on the [View/Update Protections] link at the top of the Machine Information page.

Identifying Machine Users

When you register a machine, your user ID is listed in the Protections list as one of the identities with access to the data. That's fine if you're registering the machine for yourself, but if you're registering it for another user, you should add that user to the protections list to associate them with the machine as described in Adding a User.

Additionally, if you are maintaining machine data for other users, you most likely are a member of a group that has access to the data. In that case, you can remove your user ID from the protections list as described in Deleting a User or Group, Since you are a member of the group with access to the data, you will still be able to update it in the future.

WARNING! If you delete your user ID from the Protections list and either you are not a member of the group that has access or you also delete the group, you will not be able to view or edit the record later.

Deleting a User or Group
