It is also possible to secure access to potentailly sensitive information by enforcing an authority check for the Testimony user attemtping to view test results. This can be achieved in the General parameters section for the object “Authority check for data display”. If this is enabled, or set to “X”, then Testimony will perform an authority check for the current user to validate authorization in the Source or Target system, depending on whether they’re looking at recordings or results.
The items affected by this authorization check are:
- Recording steps (business transactions)
- Recording inputs
- Recording outputs
- Playback steps
- Playback inputs
- Playback expected outputs
- Playback actual outputs
- Playback screen-shots
If the flag is set, an authority check against either the Source or Target system against the current user record. If the user has the appropriate access in the associated system then access is granted to perform the action. Otherwise access to the information is denied. This configuration setting is global and applies to all Test Plans if enabled.
