Review MDC permissions

MDC permission can be given to a map, layer and datasource. In the Manager, there is a list of all shared maps, layers and datasources. Number of MDC slots in use represents the number of unique users with MDC access to your resources. A single user takes up one slot, even if they appear multiple times, in groups etc. From the list you can remove all unnecessary MDC permissions and free your MDC slots.

  1. Open Users tab
  2. Double click on your username
  3. Click View all button
  4. List of all shared resources will open.
