how to edit user(not admin) interface
Hello, I'm new to Tactic. I'm planning to use it in my studio for an animation project. I downloaded the Tactic VMware Image package.
I try to create a project in my VMware Workstation.Everything is OK when I  log as admin.However,when I log as uesr,I find that the user account can do something as an  admin account could do . when I press the house icon button which is in the Reports  layout .It appears the Project Startup and Configuration.I can do everything as an admin here.                                                                           
 My question is that how do I deal with this situation? I do not want that the user account can view Project Startup and Configuration layout.In another words, how and where can I edit the layout that the user account can view?
Thanks!

Hello xdhstc,
 
TACTIC provides a very powerful user management and security management ui. They offers a set of predefined security access levels (i.e. none, low, medium, high) to make it easier to start setting up the different access rule for project user groups, also associating each group with an access levels presets all the security settings.
They are some really useful documents and video that might help you to get familiar with these features:

Hi there,
I have the exact same issue, as reported in the post http://community.southpawtech.com/content/examples-tab-main-page-at-login.
Sorry to say that none of Ryan's references seem to help solve the problem, which mainly comes from everybody having access to the home button.
Any other suggestions?
Thanks.

Hi sonia13:
 
You could try set the access level of the user group to be none and uncheck the all the views in Global Rules. This might not prevent user to go to the config page by using home button, but they cannot see all the stypes and the side bar.

Hi Ryan,
Thanks a lot for your reply. I tried that. The thing is that by doing so the external users still have access to the configuration menus, basically leaving me no option but having no external users. Well, at least not until a better solution comes along.
Cheers,
Sonia

Hi xdhstc, sonia13
You could try to disable the button in source code as well if you want. So the user won't see this button show up on the report page.
To do this, go to tactic\src\tactic\ui\startup\report_wdg.py
Delete the line from L240{ button = SingleButtonWdg(title="Collapse", icon=IconWdg.HOME) }  to L263{ spt.tab.add_new("_startup", "Startup", class_name, kwargs);    '''} ) }
The page will lokk like this after all: (button disappears)

It is probably better to start a new forum thread.  This last discussion was in 2014 and a lot has changed since then.

Hi Ryan
Thanks a lot for your help.It works while I do these as your advice.Your advices are not only important than it for this problem,but also you open a window for me to config some more interface through these python codes.
 
Cheers.
