The security system in SystemWeaver resembles the one of file systems, but the practical use can differ.
There are many reasons for using the security system in SystemWeaver:
- Avoid modifications made by mistake, e.g. by users reviewing an item.
- Formalized control of a development process, where only certain users have the right to change certain items.
- To protect information by using Read restriction . Using read protection means that users whom are not allowed to read all information can still work in the same system model as other users, but will only see the items they are granted access to.
