Testing Cell-Level Security

After defining cell-level security and enabling it, you can test it to see what an effected user would see when they view a form. Testing ensures that users are seeing only the cell values they are allowed to see and nobody is seeing more than they should. To test a definition, you must enable it.

To test cell-level security:

  1. Click Application, and then click Cell-Level Security.
  2. Enable the definition you want to test.
  3. Click Test, and then select the form that you want to test.
  4. In the Select or Enter a User Name text box, specify a user name or click Search icon to select a user, and then click OK.


    You can test only one user at a time.
The form displays the user access to each cell as Read, Write, or None.
