How to Create a Profile

The Access Model is accessible through the tab on the bottom of the Model panel. The top item in the Access Model tree is the system owner profile (so) and to make changes in the Access Panel you must be logged on as an administrator.

  • To create a new profile right click anywhere within the panel that is not an object to bring up the context menu.

  • Select New  Profile.

Checking the Administrative Role option will elevate this profile to a system wide administrator. Profiles that have this checkbox selected, ignore all security settings and have all rights in the overall system.
  • In the inmation Profile Credentials step you can specify whether if this profile can be used to login using inmation authentication by checking the Available option. Enter a password and make note of it, we will later use this to log in to DataStudio. Click Next to see the profile summary or Create to immediately create the profile in the Access Model panel.
