Standard ACL
  • access_rights

There are 16 standard access rights in Wialon. They are shown on the Access tab for every macro-object.

Access right



View object and its basic properties


Allows seeing the object in various lists and panels. The General tab (at least, name, creator, and resource or account) is available in the object properties dialog. However, no properties can be changed without additional rights. This is a basic right: without it, all other rights have no effect.

View detailed object properties


Allows viewing more object properties. It influences both units (viewing the Trip detector and Eco driving tabs) and accounts (the contents of the General tab in the account properties dialog is supplemented, and the Services and Restrictions tabs appear in this dialog; the Account tab is added in the user settings dialog.)

Manage access to this object


Allows granting other users rights to the object. As a rule, the Access tab becomes available in the object properties where the user can set access rights to this object. Besides, the object appears on the Access tab in the dialogs of other users, where the rights can be established as well.

Delete object


Allows deleting the object from the system.

Rename object


Allows renaming the object.

View custom fields


The Custom fields tab becomes available for viewing in the properties of an object (unit, unit group, user, resource). Moreover, the Profile tab also becomes available for viewing in the unit properties. Both View custom fields right and the next one (Manage custom fields) influence only the objects mentioned above (units, unit groups, users, resources).

Manage custom fields


Allows creating, deleting, and changing custom fields in the unit/group/user/resource properties, as well as editing the contents of the Profile tab in the unit properties. This right is valid only together with the previous one.

View admin fields


Allows users to view custom fields with limited access (admin fields) on the Custom fields tab of unit/group/user/resource properties.

Manage admin fields


Allows users to create, delete, and edit admin fields.

Edit not mentioned properties


Allows editing some advanced object properties. This right is applicable only to units (gives the opportunity to edit color schemes for a track/sensor on the Advanced tab, or enable the icon rotation on the Icon tab).

Change icon


Allows changing the icon assigned to the object. It is valid only for units and unit groups since other objects do not have such a feature.

Request reports and messages


Allows to request messages and create reports for a given object.

Edit ACL-propagated objects


Applies only to unit groups. Allows adding/removing objects from a group.

Manage object log


Allows seeing the log of an object which appears in the Log report. You should have the Request reports and messages access right to see it.

View and download files


Allows using the file server to view and download files for the chosen object.

Upload and delete files


Allows using the file server to upload and delete files for the chosen object.

If a user has the right to see the unit, its affiliation to the account, creator, groups, assigned driver, etc., these rights can be fully implemented only if this user has at least the minimum rights to the corresponding objects (account, user-creator, group, driver).
