Description

This Standard Choice enables or disables the limit on using specific contact types by module. You can use it with Standard Choice ENABLE_CONTACT_TYPE_SECURITY to control how Civic Platform, Citizen Access, and Mobile Office determine user access to record contacts by type. For more information, see Table 1.


Note:

Before the 7.2.0 release, you could limit the use of specific contact types by module in Citizen Access only. From 7.2.0 forward, you can set module-based limits on contact types either in this Standard Choice or in Citizen Access, and the setting takes effect in Civic Platform, Citizen Access, and Mobile Office. If it is the first time you add this Standard Choice, Civic Platform and Mobile Office can enforce the module-based limits previously set in Citizen Access.

When you set the Standard Choice to No, the module-based limits do not take effect in any of the products. When you do not add or you disable the Standard Choice, the module-based limits take effect in Citizen Access only.
