Domain Access Control (DACv1) is a hierarchical tree structure that can be configured to suit your company's organizational structure. Each branch in the tree contains domain nodes. The domain structure can be accessed from the Index on the main menu.

Access to content documents and flows is controlled by the domain it is assigned. Administrators define the roles and role operations that can be reused across the domain hierarchy.

With a domain hierarchy in place, users can:

  • View content that is only within their assigned domain

  • Access content according to their assigned roles and role operations within their domain

  • Use the Index page to view content by domain 

  • Use the Manage Account page to view their assigned domain

  • Use the Domain field within the About this content section of content documents and flows to define the domains where content is visible

  • Receive workflow tasks according to their assigned roles within their domain

  • See report results based on access or associated role access to content within their assigned domain

  • Filter search results to a selected domain

Domain Access Control is applicable to end users in relation to content document and flows only. Domains do not impact access at the statement level, workflow level, templates (however, generated content from templates are controlled by the domain tree), and Dashboard configurations.

Roles within a user account and content are assigned to domains. Therefore, based on the domain definitions within the user account, the user only has access to the content they require to do their job. This provides additional security to the AcceleratorKMS system and its content.

When you create content documents and flows, you define the domain and access role(s) within the content. Therefore, your access to content is determined by the role(s) and domain(s) assigned to you and the role(s) and domain(s) that are assigned to the content. In other words, you have access to content if the content's access and domain match the same roles and domains associated with your user account.
