The BOARD designer offers the opportunity to manage user and user groups.

User Groups

Click on the menu Security -> Manage Groups to create, change or delete user groups. The user group administrators can not be deleted. To create a new user group, enter a name and click on Add.


An user group can have one of the following rights:

  • Admin rights: Users of this group have all privileges. Access limitations on extractions will be ignored.
  • Create new extractions: Members of this group can create or clone extractions. Group members may not perform any admin tasks such as to change server settings, access server logs or manage users and connections.
  • Modify extractions: Group members may not create or clone extractions but may execute or edit them. Otherwise, this group has the same rights as the group Create new extractions.
  • Read extractions: Group members may not edit extractions but may read their definition. Otherwise, this group has the same rights as the group Modify extractions.


Access restricted extractions will be displayed in the Designer only for authorized users and user groups. The default user group access right is Read extractions.


Via the menu item Security ->Set User Password the user can set or change his password.

To create, change or delete users, click on the menu item Security -> Manage Users. The user admin can not be deleted.
