Creating an OAT group with read-only privileges

Create a group of database server connections in the HCL OpenAdmin Tool (OAT) for Informix® whose members can view information at a server, but cannot modify it.

Important: Read-only groups prevent users from modifying a server; they do not prevent users from accessing potentially sensitive data contained within the server. Limit membership of read-only groups to users who are authorized to view the detailed data at the server.

For more information about the restrictions for read-only groups, see Read-only group restrictions.

To create a group with read-only privileges:

  1. On the OAT Admin menu, click Manage Connections > Add Group.
  2. In the Group Name field, enter an alphanumeric name of the group.
  3. In the Password field, enter an alphanumeric password.
  4. To specify that the group has read-only privileges, select Read Only.
  5. Click Add to save the group information and add the group.
Next add server connections to the group. See Creating a server connection
