Create a system default operator record

Applies to User Roles:

System Administrator

Information in the system default operator record becomes part of all operator records at the time you create the operator record and whenever you query the operator table. The operator table displays the field values in the system default record unless there is another entry that overrides it. For example, if the system default record defines the Default Company field with the value DEFAULT, then all operator records without a defined value for this field display the value DEFAULT.

To create a system default operator record, follow these steps:

  1. Create a contact record for the system default operator record.
    1. Type contacts in the command line, and press Enter.
    2. In the Contact Name and Full Name fields, enter *SYSDEFAULTS.
    3. Click Add.
  2. Click System Administration > Ongoing Maintenance > Operators.
  3. In the Login Name and Full Name fields, type *SYSDEFAULTS.
  4. In the Contact ID field, enter *SYSDEFAULTS and click Fill.
  5. Click Add.
  6. Provide additional information that you want to use as default values for creating new operator records. For example, Time Zone, Language, Default Company, and Security Roles.
  7. Click Save.
