Permission Priority Precedence

Permission for users to access removable storage media is assigned by rules defined in both the Device Explorer and Media Authorizer modules.

When rules are defined in both Device Explorer and Media Authorizer modules, the permission priority precedence is established as follows:

  1. When default user permissions are not defined in the Device Explorer, user or user group access defined in the Media Authorizer takes precedence.
  2. When Read or Write access is not defined for a user or user group in the Device Explorer module, this rule takes precedence over any other permission rule definitions.
  3. User group permissions defined in the Media Authorizer are additive; a user can access removable storage media for all assigned member user groups.
  4. A Media Authorizer permission can only be overridden by a Temporary Permission Offline.
