The Set Alias dialog box is used to set an alias resource tree for the specified role, group, or user. It appears when an admin user selects the Set Role Alias, Set Group Alias or Set User Alias link in the Administration > Security > Alias page in the server console.
The dialog box is divided into two phases, one for selecting the role/group/user and the other for defining the alias tree.
Selecting the Role/Group/User Phase
Role Name/Group Name/User Name
Lists the roles, groups, or users for which you can set an alias resource tree. Select one from the list.
Shows information about the roles, groups, or users.
Goes to the next phase.
Cancels the setting and exits the dialog box.
Defining the Alias Tree Phase

Creates a new alias node in the current node. A node functions as a folder.
Deletes the selected alias node permanently. The root node cannot be deleted.

When you select the New button to create a new alias node in the current node, the default name for the new alias node is newAlias.

- An alias tree is based on the resource nodes (not virtual resource nodes) of the resource tree.
- By default, the alias resource tree root for each user refers to the resource tree root.
- When an alias tree is activated for a user, all resource access is then controlled by the alias resource tree.
