    Within SystemBuilder there is a process we can use to transfer group security restrictions from one group to another, though this process is little known it has been in the product since before version 6.  We get questions on this topic from customers looking for an easy way to transfer group restrictions within SB and SB/XA but find using the SB security API cumbersome or inefficient.

    The process in SB is called RESTRICT.COPY and it has not been documented, we have created a tech note on the process to demonstrate a quick and simple solution to transferring restrictions from one group to another.

    Attached is the content of this tech note, users may find this useful when managing large systems requiring a number of SB security groups.
