Subject Re: POS - ProductStoreID - DemoRetail and other confusions
Date Sun, 10 Feb 2008 19:20:30 GMT
In order to access the Manager screen in the POS terminal the party associated with the user
that is logged in must be assigned a role of "Manager." This seems a bit strange. I would
have expected this to be controlled thru security group permissions. An explanation as to
why this is controlled via roles would be helpful.

Look in Party Manager for roles of each party (using Find Party). You will find respective
partyId in DemoRetail.xml. You can also 
look for User Login (1 2 respectively).
