Database Manager

Any file accessed by the Database Manager automatically uses the rules and processes defined for the corresponding Object. If no Object has been defined for the file, it uses the DEFAULT Object. The DEFAULT Object duplicates the functionality of the earlier versions of the Database Manager.

A System Administrator may also access a file that has a corresponding Object via the DEFAULT Object by accessing the file through Database Manager with the “Administration Mode” check box marked. This check box is available for System Administrators only.

The Document Engine uses environment profiles. In previous versions of the system, a System Administrator was granted all rights (add, update, delete.), regardless of the format control settings. With the Document Engine, the rights granted match those defined in the format control record. Administrators that prefer the old method of granting rights can simply modify the “Profile Application” setting in the DEFAULT Object record from “db.environment” to “db.environment.sysadmin”.
