IDOL Admin Security

IDOL Admin is built using the public IDOL API (for more information, see the IDOL Server Reference). This means that IDOL Admin security is the same as IDOL security.

A user who connects to IDOL Admin from an IP address that is not an index client cannot use any part of IDOL Admin that uses the index port, or requires index client permissions.

To be able to run a particular action in IDOL Admin, a user must have permission to run the action using the IDOL API. There is no need to secure IDOL Admin beyond this. IDOL Admin is simply the user interface that sits on top of the documented API.
