Creating a Master Security Administrator

The VA Add Admin form allows the user to add Master Security Administrators and the Security Administration form allows users to be assigned as Security Administrators and thus, restrict another user's security form access to administering only specific company/module combinations.

A Master Security Administrator is a user who has access to the VA Security Administration and VA Add Admin forms.

There are two methods of creating a Master Security Administrator:

Becoming the first Master Security Administrator

To become the first Master Security Administrator:

  1. Confirm that you already have been given Global access to all companies in VA Form Security. (If you do not have access, the form's icon will be grayed out in the Viewpoint Administration Programs menu.)
  2. In VA Site Settings, select the Enable Security Administration check box. Selecting the check box makes the first user to do so the first Master Security Administrator and enables the VA Security Administration form.
  3. Click OK.
