Security

New Security Role Added to EMS Desktop Client: View Reservation Summary

A new role, View Reservation Summary, has been added to everyday user security templates (accessed in the EMS Desktop Client through Configuration > Everyday User Applications > Everyday User Security Templates > New/Edit template > Roles tab).

This new role relates to the reservation summary links in notification/confirmation emails. When a user clicks on a reservation summary link in an email, the EMS Web App will perform an authentication check before displaying the Reservation Summary page: 

  • If the user is the owner of the reservation, or a delegate of the owner, the user can view the Reservation Summary page, even if the user has not been assigned the View Reservation Summary role.
  • If the user has been assigned the View Reservation Summary role, then the user can view the Reservation Summary page.
  • If the user has not been assigned the View Reservation Summary role, then the user cannot view the Reservation Summary page.

Administrators can use this new role to limit access to reservation information from forwarded emails.
