This article is about authorising team members in a USoft 10.0 development environment.

For the USoft 9.1 situation, click here.

Team members play typical roles in a project. Think of developers, architects, analysts and administrators.

Developer roles give access to the different USoft tools in Development. USoft has created predefined developer roles for you. All you need to do is to open Authorizer and assign team members to the correct developer roles. The general steps are:

  1. In Development, open USoft Authorizer.
  2. Find the predefined roles for the tool you want to give access to. Use the “Authorizer names” table below to identify the tool.
  3. Assign each team member to the required role.

Find more on USD roles in the next section.

Find more on USAUTH, UDELIVER, USERVICE, USTESTER roles at the end of this article.

Authorizer names for USoft tools

This is what the USoft tools are called in USoft Authorizer:

Authorizer name Tool name
USD

USoft Definer

USoft Web Designer

USoft Windows Designer

USAUTH USoft Authorizer
UDELIVER USoft Delivery Manager
USERVICE USoft Service Definer
USTESTER USoft Benchmark

Developer roles for USD

There are 7 developer roles for application USD (USoft Definer, USoft Web Designer, USoft Windows Designer). They are listed in the table below.

C-R-U-D stands for Create - Read - Update - Delete. This corresponds to INSERT - SELECT - UPDATE - DELETE access rights. All the access rights listed are foreground rights.

All the roles listed have full Job Rights and Component Rights with "Foreground and background” scope.

To find out what are the "Teamwork objects”, see the table below. "Technical objects” are all the remaining objects.

If you are upgrading from a USoft 9.1 situation with predefined access rights, all developers will automatically keep their roles and access rights.

Most 9.1 teams use predefined access rights only. But if your team changed the access rights of a predefined role, something that was possible in 9.1 but no longer in 10.0, then these changes will be lost on upgrade. Instead, 10.0 team members will automatically get the predefined access rights listed below.
