To use the new Digital Documents feature, additional authorizations are required on the satellite systems. These are delivered as authorization role /DYNAM/SATELLITE_DIGDOC_LOAD, which is included in the collective role /DYNAM/SATELLITE_ALL.
If the delivered authorization role /DYNAM/MASTER_ALL is not used on the master—but more restricted roles are used instead—then these roles may need to be adapted for using the new features.
