Definition, Description or Meaning

Access Control Entry

An Allow or Deny permission that is set against a User, Role or Group.

Access Control List

A list of Users, Roles and Groups, given access to Data Definitions, Data Definition Categories and to other Users, Roles and Groups.

ACL (see "Access Control List")


ACL (Dynamic)

A list of Users, Roles and Groups, whose access to Data Definitions is configured directly on the Data Definitions.

Acquisition Parameters (Scanning)

A choice of pre-set values or options which set all scanned images' properties.

Active Directory Synchronisation

Active Directory Synchronization (AD Sync) is the area in Management Studio's Configuration section where you can configure the importation of Users from one, or more, previously configured external directories (for example, Email lists, Documentation Distribution lists, etc.) and, by performing regular synchronisations, automatically create, up-date and manage the list of active DataStoreDSX Users and Groups.

Because it’s an automatic process, as well as ensuring all users' information is up-to-date, it also removes the possibility of manually introducing errors and the need to manually review and edit changing lists of currently active and available users.

Activity (see "User's Log-in Activity")


Ad Hoc Cache

A mechanism for holding non-essential values so they can be retrieved relatively easily and quickly without using expensive calls to deeper storage. There are two of these caches, one for the server’s processes and one for the client’s processes.

(See also, "Search Parameter Choices")
