This section discusses how to:

Granting Access Rights

Archive Security page

This page enables you to grant access rights to the permission lists that use PeopleSoft Archive Data Tool.

The permission lists that you add need to exist already in PeopleTools Security. The permission list must be the primary permission list for the user profile in order for the user to have access to the command button.

Permission List

Select the permission lists to which you grant archive data access.

Can Generate SQL?

Select to enable the user to generate SQL on the SQL Designer pages by activating the Generate SQL button.

Can Edit SQL?

Select to enable the user to edit the SQL on the SQL Designer page.

Can Run SQL?

Select to enable the user to run SQL on the SQL Designer page.

Can Purge Audit?

Select to enable the user to purge the audit history on the Archiving Audit page.

Note: PeopleTools delivers a process group ARCHALL that should be added to the appropriate permission list using PeopleTools Security. You cannot run any archive processes until this group is added to the permissions list.
