Configuring TEXTML Server permissions

There are two levels of security in the TEXTML Server:
  • Authentication: Authentication is the process of identifying and verifying TEXTML Server users when they log in to the TEXTML Server before providing access. Authentication can be enabled or disabled through the configuration file, as described in the TEXTML Server Installation Guide.
  • Server components permissions: Once a user has been authenticated, the TEXTML Server retrieves the Linux or Windows groups to which this user belongs and, based on these groups and the user name, determines the permissions assigned to this user. Server components permissions control access to components (servers, docbases, collections) and to documents.

The following topics describes how to configure permissions for the TEXTML Server components. To implement authentication, see the TEXTML Server Installation Guide.
