What is password masking?
The safest passwords are those that you do not know. Password masking follows this approach. It prevents the password from being shown, while allowing the use of the automatic sign-on. You can apply it via the button of the same name in the ribbon.
Analogous to the , the Authorise permission on the data set is required to be able to install or remove the masking. Users use have the authorize right for a record can continue to use the record without limitations after applying password masking. Password masking thus only applies to users without the stated right.
Applying password masking
The icon in the ribbon allows users with the required permissions to apply password masking following a confirmation prompt. By default, the privacy is for all those who have at least reading permission, but not the right * entitled *.
Password masking via form field permissions
The special feature when setting or editing masking via the form field permissions is that you can individually select users to whom masking will be applied. In the following example, masking has been specified only for the role of “trainees”, although the “IT” role does not have the Authorize right either. In addition to the name of the role or the user, the icon symbolizes the fact that visa protection applies to trainees.
