1 Overview

System Access Management or SAM is the primary security module of bxp. 016.png

Every user has a unique account. Everything that occurs in bxp is linked to this unique account and is auditable. The level of audit detail varies.

There are two primary security considerations for every user. Functional and Content access. These are described here. Function_Vs._Content

  • Functional access is concerned with the modules of bxp
  • Content access is concerned with access to content stored in the modules.

System Champions are usually responsible for user management which is primarily done through the System Access Management module. Understanding_bxp_Support#System_Champions

To provide support to your bxp system All n One will add have some active accounts. All_n_One_accounts_in_your_bxp_system

When managing a bxp system there are three areas of discussion:

  • All user accounts are subject to system wide settings.
  • Individual accounts can be heavily customised and override system level customisations.
  • When working with large volumes of user accounts there are host of tools available to make group management easier.
