Securing versions & processing opts on Menu


Active Member
Is it possible to secure users from changing a menu selection's assigned version or processing options?

I know you can set the security level on a version to that where only the creator can change it. But, it appears to me that by right clicking the mouse on a menu selection, you can change that selection's the assigned version and use another version. Also, it appears that by right clicking the mouse you can change the menu selection's processing options.

I would like to be able to disable the right mouse button from allowing someone to change to another version or change the processing options of the menu selection.

We secure by entering Processing Option security for the user/group the
REPORT number or *ALL for all objects if you so desire. Setting up
Processing Options security (Security Type / alias SETY = 5), you can lock
users / groups out of: 1) Changing Processing Options and / or 2) Viewing
Processing Options and / or 3) Prompt for Versions. You do this on menu

Processing option security should do the trick.

For UBEs only, XE now has the option to prevent user's from changing versions and/or processing options values but still give the user the ability to change data selection. This is handled in the Menu Design application.
