The left-hand panel of the main screen is called Databases, and from here you use checkboxes to select the databases you'd like to work with.
Once a selection is made, any ACL information will appear in the ACL Entries section (situated, by default, on the upper right-hand side of aclEZ). The ACL Entries pane uses the grid interface. You'll find five tabbed panels in the lower right-hand side of the main screen: Output, Attributes, Roles, Global ACL Properties and ACL Entry Presence.

Menu options


  • Open Server (Ctrl+O): Choose the server that you'd like to work on. You must pick a server before you begin using aclEZ.
  • Apply Changes (Ctrl+S): Changes you make in aclEZ will be marked with a 'pencil' icon, but they won't actually be enacted until you choose Apply Changes.
  • Export: Use this function to generate a text or HTML report based on your server's ACL information.
  • Save Database Selection: This option will save the current selection of databases in the Database panel to a Ytria XML file for future use.
  • Save ACL Entry Selection: This option will save both the current selection of databases in the Database panel and any ACL entries selected in the grid to a Ytria XML file for future use.
  • Load Saved Selection: This allows you to load a Ytria XML file to restore a saved selection.
  • Themes: All Ytria tools allow you to change their theme or "skin." Read more about this feature here.
