Issue/Introduction

Can I get an overview of the Job Creator (Right) access right? We see several resources with this right, but none of them have created a job or report, nor do they have access to. They also have not been explicitly granted this right. How does this right get assigned?

Environment

Release : 15.8.1

Component : CLARITY USERS, GROUPS, OBS ADMINISTRATION

Resolution

Even if user does not have access to Reports and Job from the Home menu they can still trigger a job via an Action from project or Tasks.

In some cases, Users have access to run processes which have steps to run certain jobs. Since the user's don't have any rights to run the Report or Job, this instance right is granted automatically to that user. For each instance of the Process that is run by the user there is one addition of the Job instance to the Instance level right granted to the user.
