Shared Shortcuts

Shared folders hold shortcuts that anyone can access. You can move any shortcut within My Catalog to a shared folder and share it with other users. Like report objects, shared shortcuts rely on user groups to enable and control access.

In brief, here is how to share shortcuts in the IUIE:

  1. Create a user security group, called a shared group, to control who can access the folder containing the shortcuts you have chosen to share.
  2. Assign the security to the shared folder.
  3. Create the folder.
  4. Move shortcuts into the shared folder.
  5. Finally, grant access to the shared folder and its contents by adding the users to the shared group you created at the beginning of the process.

Spend some time planning in order to be prepared for creating Shared Folders and shortcuts in the IUIE.
