You view security roles with Administration | Security Role. The window contains the following:

Name: Click this heading to sort the list by name. Click again to reverse the order (from ascending to descending or vice versa).

Description: Click this heading to sort the list by description. Click again to reverse the order.

Apply Filter: Lets you set up a filter to select which records should be shown in the table. For more information, see Table Filters.

Details section: Shows information about the selected security role.

Permissions section: Shows what permissions are associated with the selected security role.

Users section: Shows which users have the selected security role.

New Custom Security Role: Opens a window where you can create a new security role. Note that specifying a new role may require sophisticated technical knowledge of Microsoft SQL Server and MainBoss itself. For more on specifying roles, see Editing Security Role Records.

Edit: Opens an editor window to display the selected record. This version of MainBoss doesn't let you edit the built-in role records, so Edit actually has the same effect as View.

Delete: Deletes the selected security role. You cannot delete the predefined security roles that MainBoss itself defines; you can only delete security roles created by people inside your organization.

Print: Opens a window that lets you print security role information. For more, see Printing Security Role Records.

Search: Lets you search through the list of records for a particular record. For more information, see Searching for a Particular Record. The Search button has an accompanying drop-down list containing the following:

Find Next: Uses the same search condition(s) as your most recent search and finds the next record in the table that matches the condition(s). If the search reaches the end of the table without finding a matching record, it goes to the start of the table and continues the search.

Find Previous: Same as Find Next except that it goes backward in the table. If the search reaches the start of the table without finding a matching record, it goes to the end of the table and continues the search.

Refresh: Updates the list to reflect any recent changes.

For more information on role records, see Security Roles. For more information on creating or editing role records, see Editing Security Role Records. For how to print role records, see Printing Security Role Records. For general information on table viewers, see Using Table Viewers.
