Example
// Copy the rights from a user to another one
Rights is string
Rights = HInfoServerRights("MyConnection", "Smith", hRightsCreateDB)
HModifyServerRights("MyConnection", "Doe", hRightsCreateDB, Rights)
Syntax
<Result> = HModifyServerRights(<Connection Name> , <Name of User/Group> , <Rights to Modify> , <New Values>)
<Result>: Boolean
  • True if the rights have been modified,
  • False otherwise. HErrorInfo is used to identify the error. No modification is performed if the new value is already assigned to the specified rights.
Note: An error ("Unknown user" or "Unknown group") will be returned by HErrorInfo if the current user does not have the rights to see the users (hRightsSeeUser constant) and if he wants to get information about another user or another group.
<Connection Name>: Character string (with or without quotes)
Name of the connection for which the rights granted to a user or to a group of users must be modified. This connection contains the name of the server for which the rights must be modified. This connection was defined in the data model editor, or by HDescribeConnection or HOpenConnection.
<Name of User/Group>: Character string (with or without quotes)
Name of the user or group whose rights must be modified.
<Rights to Modify>: Integer constant (or combination of constants)
List of rights to modify:
hRightsStopServerRights to stop a server (HStopServer).
hRightsChangeRightsRights to change the rights.
hRightsChangePasswordRights to change the password of a user on the server (the user can change his own password and the administrator can change the password of each user).
hRightsCreateDBRights to create a database.
Note: The rights to create a database automatically give the rights to connect to this database when it is created.
hRightsDisconnectClientRights to disconnect the client computers.
hRightsSendMessageToClientRights to send messages to the client computers.
hRightsManageTaskRights to manage the scheduled tasks.
hRightsManageServerRights to use HSetServer.
hRightsManageUserRights to delete and add users or groups.
hRightsReadLogStatRights to see the activity statistics and the logs of the server.
hRightsPriorityRights to modify the priority of the current application (HPriority) or the priority of another client application (HPriorityClient).

hRightsSeeUserRights to see the information regarding the users and the groups.
<New Values>: Integer constants
List of new values for the modified rights. New values must be assigned to all the rights specified in <Rights to Modify> (in the same order).
If a single value is indicated in this parameter, it will be assigned to all the rights specified in <Rights to Modify>.
The possible values are as follows:
hAllowedThe relevant rights are granted to the user or to the group.
hForbiddenThe relevant rights are not granted to the user or to the group.
hInheritThe user will inherit from the value of the rights granted to the user group to which he belongs.
Remarks

When is the modification of rights performed?

The modification of rights is effective as soon as HModifyServerRights is run for the users who are connected and affected by the modification. There is no need to restart the server to take the new rights into account.

What are the rights required to add and/or to modify the users or the groups?
