The correct user mode for your use case - Define by yourself which employee is allowed to import which data into your P6 database

Especially in project work, it is essential that several employees, internally as well as externally, can access the same database. Changing or deleting the settings of relevant data is something you want to avoid. With the proimporter you can determine in detail which employees have which impact on the import.

The proimporter has three predefined user modes at your disposal. These modes differ in the authorization in Oracle® Primavera P6 (EPPM). Find out which is the right one for your individual use case.

Global Admin (Global)

This user can create global objects and has access to all proimporter functions. This setting is particularly suitable for project managers and administrators who want to manage and import users, calendars, database connections, or equivalent items.

Power User (Medium)

This user uses the "safest" setting as default value and the existing Oracle® Primavera P6 (EPPM) objects as reference. For example, users who need to merge cross-project evaluations according to certain attributes and from different sources should be verified as power users.

User (Low)

The normal user chooses the "safest" setting for an import. This user is only allowed to import project-specific objects into Oracle® Primavera P6 EPPM. This avoids the risk of contamination of global data.
