  • The user Profiles interface is used to configure Data authorization and manage profiles - data authorizations (and also User roles - 2.x and above.) are assigned to profiles
  • The Users interface is used to assign profiles (managed in the Profiles tab) to Users/Groups
  • Any changes made in the interface to assigned roles are only taken into account when the user logs out and logs back in again. Data data authorizations are effective immediately.

Using a RESTRICTED legacy type license key for accessing the Dashboard schema

This section is not relevant for those using a current license key. Authorizations are always defined in the UI and the license.xml is ignored.

When using a legacy type RESTRICTED license key for accessing the Dashboard schema (Engineering/Security Dashboard) - see Dashboard Service license key configuration - you MUST define authorizations manually in the following file:

Code Block
WAR ≥ 2.x
ZIP ≥ 2.x

JAR ≥ 2.x
Windows: %PROGRAMDATA%\CAST\Dashboards\<dashboard>\license.xml
Linux: /root/ProgramData/CAST/Dashboards/<dashboard>/license.xml

In other words, if you are using:

  • standalone Engineering Dashboard AND a standalone Health Dashboard AND you are using a legacy type RESTRICTED license for the Engineering Dashboard
  • a combined WAR/ZIP file (containing both the Engineering and Health Dashboards) AND you are using aa legacy type RESTRICTED license for the Engineering Dashboard
