Granting delete access only ?

Does anyone know of a way to grant users delete access only, i.e. not grant them "all tools" access on the CMS, but just so they are allowed to delete outdated objects ?

(Have a fairly high turnover of servers)

Re: Granting delete access only ?

Hi,
I think if you give "rights NONE" to a user, the only way to grant him to delete a system is to create a new toolbox.
Try this procedure:
1 - Copy the attached xml file on /var/opt/mx/tools of CMS (this came from SIM lab)
2 - mxtoolbox -a "Operator Tools"
3 - mxtool -a -f /var/opt/mx/tools/remove-system.xml
4 - give to a user the authorization to run "Operator Tools"

The user will have "Operator Tools" on Tools menu'.

Thanks, but would you or anyone else happen to know what path that would be on a Windows server instead of a Linux ?

I think I've gotten the path right, though I can't seem to get it to run, I accidentally didn't change execute-as from root to my service account and now it just tries to run as root which of course does not exist.

Now it works, must include "domain name\service account" to run under Windows.
