  • Discovery and a Log View of the system activity.

You may add other third-party links as necessary.

Role Name

Select the role name for which you want to grant access. You can also limit user access to the link through security by removing the Permission List containing the component from the Role Definition. You can also unauthorize the component or page in the Permission List.

Note: If you assign a role, only the role assigned has access to the link. If no Role Name is entered for the Related Link, the Link will NOT appear in the Related Links pagelet.
