Issue/Introduction

The option whether to use an OBS for access rights can only be changed if that OBS is not yet associated to an entity (under Administration - Setup - Entities). The checkbox to the left of the OBS name (under Administration - OBS) will not be available for an OBS once it has been associated to an entity. Without this checkbox, the option whether or not to use this particular OBS for access rights cannot be changed. 

If an OBS is already associated to an entity, but it was not set to be used for access rights beforehand, is there a way to change this OBS to allow it to be used for access rights?

Resolution

Once the OBS is linked to an entity, the OBS can not be modified.

If the OBS requires to be enabled for access rights, you can do it via XOG.

Steps to perform:

1. XOG out the OBS by using the obs_read.xml file

   You can use the following tag:

   <Filter name="name" criteria="EQUALS">Department OBS</Filter>

2. Edit the output file and locate the following tag:

    obs code="department_obs" isSecurity="false"

3. Modify the isSecurity tag to "true"

4. XOG the OBS in

You will notice that the OBS is now access rights enabled.
