Understanding Using Web Services for Object and Row-Level Data Authorization

PeopleSoft provides a security authorization service that you can use to authorize access to certain PeopleSoft objects and row-level data on local and remote PeopleSoft nodes.

Note: The terms security authorization service and authorization service are used interchangeably in this documentation.

Object Authorization

You can use the security authorization service to authorize basic security access to content references, components and pagelets. You can also use the service to get the authorization for users to run PeopleSoft queries and iScripts.

Row-Level Data Authorization

The security authorization service enables you to authorize row-level data access to data on local and remote PeopleSoft nodes.

For example, in the related content framework, you can create related services out of components residing on a remote node and assign them as related actions to a component on the local node. You can use the security authorization service to determine if a user can access the services using the related actions on the local node.

Basic security to a content reference or component must be cleared before the system tests for and authorizes row-level data access.
