Use the Security tab to authorise users to run Object Maintenance and to define which objects they can maintain.

You can restrict users so that they can only maintain objects within particular areas. The way you restrict them is based on the tree structure of the objects. You either give users access to all objects, or to a particular object in the tree. When you give users access to an object in the tree, they can then maintain that object and all the objects below that branch of the tree, but nothing above that object. See Maintaining object security.

The security you define here applies to:
