QuestionThoughts on Authorization in a Hierarchical User Structure. PinmemberBrady Kelly1-Dec-12 1:56 
AnswerRe: Thoughts on Authorization in a Hierarchical User Structure. PinmemberEddy Vluggen2-Dec-12 2:56 
Brady Kelly wrote:
For authorization, I have interpreted this so that a user higher up in the user tree has access to all users below them in the tree, as well as entities owned by those lower users. This seems logical to me, as a user higher in the tree 'owns' users lower down.

I don't find that logical. If I were a node in your tree, I'd only pay attention to my parent - the topnode would never be relevant in my work. That's based on the idea of a "chain of command". If my bosses' boss could manage me directly, my boss would be superfluous. Better to check with the client whether your interpretation is correct.

My client is unclear on what he wants here and expects some assistance in deriving a practical authorization scheme for this hierarchical user scheme.

"Authorization"? You mean the top-dog could login using my credentials?? There's bears down that road; it messes up audits.

This preserves the higher privilege of higher users, but prevents a more senior user creating customers for more junior users to work on.

Not per se; just make sure that the junior is "part of" the group working on the customer Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
