Adding User Permissions to an Application

You must add user permissions to an application to allow other users to view and interact with an application.

Consider the following requirements when you assign permissions to end users:

  • End users require only the Access App permission if there are no reports or underlying tables on the application pages.
  • If an application page points to an underlying table, then assign the Access Records permission to the end user in the Security dialog box for that table. For instructions, see Adding User Permissions to a Table.
  • If the page includes a report, then add the user to the list of Selected Users for that report. For instructions, see Configuring Report Security.
