How to disable Primavera P6 admin config or Application Settings from User

 

Primavera P6 admin config is one of the powerful area which allows the user to change the P6 database setting, Authentication, Configuring LDAP, BPM & BI Integration Settings, Configuring P6 Web Service & P6 API, Daylight setting and much more. A change in the P6 admin config affects the whole application. Suppose, if a user updates the database URL incorrectly then P6 won’t work. So, granting this right to every-one contains Risk. Only System Administrator and P6 Admin superuser could have access to this setting. Typically, the P6 admin config looks like below. /p6/action/admin is the config path to access the admin config

Primavera P6 ships with a Global security Profile called ‘Admin SuperUser’. This user has all the powers to modify the P6 including admin-config. We can’t modify this user profile, either grant this profile to the System administrator and P6 Administrator

Disable P6 Admin Config

 

 

As I mentioned earlier, we don’t have option to the profile Admin Superuser. We need to create a Global Security Profile, so we can disable the admin config. To do this:

 

 

1. Login to P6 as the admin user, Go to User Administration, Click on Global Security Profile, Select/create a profile, Uncheck the Edit Application Settings under Administrator. This will stop user to see the admin config

 

The User Administration is under link Administration (top right corner) on version less than and equal to 16.2

4. If the user tries to access the P6 admin config (/p6/action/admin) then he will be redirected to a Login screen for credential who has authorized to access admin config and an error message User does not have permission to modify P6 configuration will be displayed like below
