Eclipse SE v2016.3.x – File System Security & User Rights

Active Directory:


When importing Active Directory (AD) users, Eclipse SE uses AD to simply verify a user's credentials. When the user logs in to Eclipse SE, the application performs a quick AD login to ensure user is valid. Eclipse SE does not automatically add users via AD if new employees are added to the domain. You will need to add them in Eclipse SE as you did for the initial import of users from AD.


Eclipse SE does not set any file path rights. The rights assigned to users for the network will not be changed after they log in to Eclipse SE. Eclipse SE adds a layer of security, however, that limits or controls which cases users can access and the activities that can be performed in Eclipse SE.


NOTE: If Eclipse SE’s security grants a user access to a case, but their AD rights prevent them access to the case database folder, then the user will not able to see case data. Eclipse SE does not violate or supersede AD settings.


File System:


Eclipse SE users need the following system permissions:


The system administrator needs to have the MODIFY permission for the SE system directory and the case database directories.


Case administrators should be granted the MODIFY permission for the entire system directory and any data directories for any cases they are assigned.


All Eclipse SE users need at a minimum, READ access to the Eclipse SE system directory. Also:


– Users need the MODIFY permission for the EclipseSession.udb, SysUserBatch.udb, and SysUserPreferences.udb files that reside in the Eclipse SE system directory.


– Any user assigned the Eclipse SE privileges to create tags, Tiff-On-the-Fly, import data, ingest natives, ingest images, rebuild indexes, or produce in a case will need to have the MODIFY permission for the case database directory.
