Workstation Permissions/User Settings

Browser Client Settings & Preferences Stored on the Server

As of Evergreen 3.2, a permission has been added to allow which accounts can apply values to workstation settings. Ultimately, this will prevent users from having to reset their settings everytime they register a new workstation. This can especially be helpful post-system upgrade so workstation settings can be restored and applied automatically.

Here is the workstation script to add the permission manually:

INSERT INTO permission.grp_perm_map (grp, perm, depth)
    (SELECT id FROM permission.grp_tree WHERE name = 'Staff'), -- name may vary
    (SELECT id FROM permission.perm_list WHERE code =
    0 -- or 1, 2, etc.

What this will do is create a workstation setting that will also match with what was previously stored in the browser either by localStorage or by Hatch.
