Different Entry Points for Different User Groups

The hierarchical menu structure has one menu page at its root. This menu page, however, is not necessarily the entry point for all users. Users are assigned to user groups. Each user group has its own particular entry point. Members of these user groups are only able to access the menus that are part of the sub tree to which they have been granted access. In this way, you can regulate user access to your application.

The possibility to include a text line plus its associated action more than once in a menu system, and to give different user groups different entry points, enables you to restrict access to certain functionality. Also, you can give different user groups access to completely different menu structures.
