1.2 Grant User Application Access
A How-To Recipe
A new User needs to be granted access to applications they are going to work with. Or, an existing User needs access to an additional application. For example, in the screen capture below, the User named c1.user2 has been created, with access to the two authorization control components - sphere and casauth - but does have access to any of the applications (no checks in the red box).

The process of granting access to applications components within CIE is a simple two step process:
From the Identity Manager compont of the Control Panel select the user as shown in Figure 2.

Figure 4 show the Create area that when clicked provides access to the associated application. Figure 4 is the "before" and Figure 5 shows the "after" states.

It is important to remember that access to an application is separate from the users role within the application. The process described above only grant access. The Role a user has within an application is configured within the specific application.
