*Conan The Librarian
An access control list (ACL) is a list of access control entries (ACEs). ACEs allow or deny access to commands and other CMS objects. For example, you can create an ACE specifying certain users who are not allowed to insert or modify a particular element. The use of ACLs could possibly cause unintended restrictions. You should fully understand the composition of both VMS and CMS ACLs before using CMS ACLs. See the "Guide to Code Management System for VMS Systems" for information on using ACLs. Choose the Set ACL... menu item to create, modify, or delete an ACL on various objects in the library.
