Privilege Management Reports (SigAuth)

The Purchasing and Payment Services () department uses a database that contains users´ privileges to many Vanderbilt applications. You can generate these reports to determine who has signature authorization ("SigAuth") for a particular center as well as to view audit trail information about when users were set up with privileges on certain applications.

Infoview Training

This training will teach you about the InfoView reporting tool in general. Vanderbilt publishes many reports through this application, so depending on your privileges, you might be able to run reports outside of the Privilege Management scope. This training will explain what user options you have in InfoView, regardless of what specific reports you generate.

(Note that you do NOT need Business Objects training to run these reports.)
