Secured Entity Types - Business Steward Module

An entity type is a category of items to which you want to grant or deny access. The following entity type controls access to parts of the Business Steward Module.


Controls the ability to modify or delete exception records assigned to other users in the Read Exceptions stage and the Exception Editor. Also controls the ability to review and manage exception record activity in the Exception Manager and enables access to Performance data in the Business Steward Portal.

Users with Edit permissions for the Business Steward Portal group must also have Security-Users View permissions for the Platform group in order to assign or reassign exception records.

In addition to creating secured entity types, you can also create security entity overrides that specify restrictions for specific dataflows or even specific stages. These overrides supersede user- and role-based secured entity type settings in that they make the permissions more restrictive.

In the Business Steward Module, you can create overrides for dataflows and stages as follows:
  • To view information about the Business Steward Portal Performance page
  • To modify data on the Business Steward Portal Dashboard and Exception Editor
  • To reassign exceptions and modify status on the Business Steward Portal Exceptions Manager
  • To delete dataflows on the Business Steward Portal Exceptions Manager

For example, if user JohnSmith has Edit permissions based on the secured entity type, but there is a specific dataflow that his manager doesn't want anyone to alter, his manager can define an access control setting that restricts John from modifying that particular dataflow. He is still able to edit other dataflows, but not the one for which there is an access control setting that restricts him. Also, he will still be able to view and update exception records that are assigned to him from that dataflow in the Exception Editor.
