Configuring and Implementing Authorization in OpenEdge

Where all OpenEdge RDBMS clients rely on a single authentication model for all of their security components, OpenEdge supports two entirely different authorization models, one for SQL, and the other for ABL and everything else. The only common element between them is that they both rely on the same forms of OpenEdge user identity to configure authorization for users. This chapter describes the basic elements of how to work with these authorization models in OpenEdge.
* OpenEdge authorization models
* Non-multi-tenant vs. multi-tenant authorization
* Tenant data access
* When a user's domain is available for access control
* User ID patterns as ACLs and ABL permissions checking
