How to control the P6 Secure Code access levels

1. Login into P6 >> Administrator >> User Access >> Global Security Profiles >> Select a profile >> Click on the codes tab >> Enable the options you want

Edit Secure Code >> User can Edit, Assign & View any secure code, that modify the code & code values

Assign Secure Code >> User can Assign & View any secure code, that is assign a code value to a project, activity, etc

View Secure Code >> User can view secure code, user not authorize to modify the code values

Add/Secure Delete Codes >> User can Add & Delete Secure codes with the above three privileges

Unselecting all the above option >> User can’t see any secure code

Note: There are other options available here, like Edit Project Code, Edit Resource Code, etc. They have high precedence over secure codes. For example: Enabling Edit Project code and View Secure Code can make user can edit the project codes

(includes secure project code) and view only access to other codes like Activity Code

Here, I have created a Global Security Profile ViewSecureProfile which has View Secure Codes access
