Issue Details

I am using the RESTful API for DataFinder Server, and would like to restrict access to certain commands so that only certain users can run the command. 


This can be achieved by creating a custom role.
  1. Go into the NI Web Server Configuration window and create a new role in the Roles tab.
  1. Add the desired user(s) to the new role
  1. In the Applications tab of the Server Configuration window, give the custom role access to your commands. Note that commands running on the server itself should be added under TDM Server Manager.
