Setting the IEC user and role mappings

Use this procedure to set the secure role Mappings for IEC users.

  1. In the LCM Applications tab, select the Space > grid node where IEC is installed.
  2. Right-click <IEC application name> > Configure Application.

    The Infor ION Grid Management Pages is displayed.

  3. Click the Edit Role Mappings link.

    The User and Role Mappings window is displayed.

    Note: 

    For IEC, the roles defined in IFS are IECEC-Administrator and IECEC-User. These roles are mapped to the app-admin and app-user IEC-Grid roles respectively. So, if a user needs access to IEC as an app-admin, they must add an IECEC-Administrator (IFS) role to the user and the user will automatically have access to IEC as an app-admin.

    For more information on Infor Federation Services (IFS), see Security considerations in M3 Core Installation Planning Guide.

    For more information on defining role mappings, see Global Roles and Application Roles in Infor ION Grid Security Administration Guide

    This table shows the default IEC application defined roles in grid. Note that all roles in this table have access to Mapping REST resource. Mapping Resource REST calls are needed for developing mappings.
