Question:

How do I grant transition permission across user group in E-Notebook 17.x? Group A must be able to transition group B experiments from "Pending to Review" to "Reviewed".

Answer:

Transition security is regulated using Roles. Please refer to E-Notebook Administrator's Guide -> E-Notebook Management -> Managing Roles and Privileges -> Configuring Roles for Transitions in E-Notebook. Basically, you pick the required Grantee for your target user group, and for Privilege you choose the role which is currently configured for that transition. For example, if group A must be able to transition group B experiments from "Pending to Review" to "Reviewed", please do the following. Right-click on UserGroupB for "Collection Properties" -> "Security" tab -> use "Grant" button to assign, for example:

Grantee = 'UserGroupA'

Privilege = 'Role1' (or whatever role is configured to transition experiment from "Pending to Review" to "Reviewed").

Instead of using the existing role, you can also create a new role with just those privileges which are required for another user group.

NOTE: You can find a copy of the E-Notebook Administrator's Guide on your Application Server. The path should be similar to "C:\Program Files (x86)\PerkinElmer\E-Notebook\Admin\E-Notebook Administrator Guide.htm".
