Title

Getting security permissions from an external data source

Post

     Hello all,

     I have a database that is accessing an external data source.  I will call the external source "Data" and the local database "Local".  

     When Local launches, it signed into a "Standard" user.  I restricted all edit access to menus, layouts, scripts, etc.  The Data file has multiple privilege sets:  Admin, Manager, Employee, etc.

     What I'm looking to do is further restrict the Local file.  For instance, there is a pop up that allows managers to view and edit hours worked.  I only want the Manager privilege set to be able to view.  For the Employee set, I'd want something that displays a message.

     Is there a command or get feature that can access the external source's security groups?

     Thanks in advance.
