VISION: Security - Adding New Users

In this article we will go over new user permissions and user rights, how to create a superuser, default group, and a user and copying a default group.

NOTE:  The Security function controls access to the application itself and to individual functions within the application.

Permissions and User Rights

The assignment of permissions and user rights is administered and maintained by the client (not Valiant).

An authorized user can create/edit user logins and passwords for other users.

Specific permissions can be assigned to an individual user or category of users.

Vision™ has three (3) user categories: User, Default and Superuser.
All individual Vision™ users must be designated a User or Superuser.


This category is created by Valiant.

Generally assigned to those individuals who will be assigned the responsibility of the organization,
typically the System Administrator.

Has full security rights and privileges to all Levels, Divisions and application functions.

Can create security rights and restrictions for all other user categories.

Users cannot create a Superuser.


Special user category designed to create Permission Groups – from which individual users may be

Default is only used to create the Permission Group – individual users cannot be assigned a Default.

Avoids repetitive steps when creating a group of new users with identical security permissions.


Individual employees are assigned, either with individually selected Division and Permission rights or by
Permission Groups (i.e. Default).
