This article details how to change the number of attributes displayed in Access Rights Manager, depending on the user role.

For the function "Change personal information" - which is available in the cockpit, as well as some analysis and act scenarios - the ARM loads a standard set of attributes. The standard set is the same for all roles.


The available attributes can be adjusted individually for each ARM user role. The changes are applied without the need to restart the ARM service.

  1. Open the directory folder %programdata%\\ARM\cfg
  2. Open the file pnserver.config.xml
  3. Edit the following line sections:
