Permissions

< Back

User permissions can be granted at the application level (user and group) or at the project level.

Permissions are granted in a hierarchical manner, permissions granted at the application level will take precedence over all other permissions assigned at the project level. If restricted access to some projects is required, then permissions should be granted at the project level.

Assigning Application Wide Permissions

Application level permissions are granted at the user and group level. To assign users or groups application wide permissions, you will need to have the Manage User and Group Security permission. Follow these steps to assign permissions:

  1. Navigate to the Admin tab.
  2. Double Click on either the Users folder or the Groups folder.
  3. Find and edit the user or group you want to add permissions to.
  4. Click on the Permissions tab.
  5. Here you can select to assign the permissions to grant to the user or group.
  6. Click Save to apply the permissions.

Assigning Project Only Permissions

To grant permissions to a group or user for a specific project only, you must first assign the user or group to the project and then assign the relevant permissions.

Note that if the user has been granted greater permissions at the application level then these will take precedence.

To grant project permissions, firstly assign the user or group to the project:

  1. Navigate to the Admin tab.
  2. Expand the Organisations folder and sub folders to display your project.
  3. Double click on the project.
  4. Use the Assign Users or Assign Groups tabs to add Users and Groups to this project.

Now apply Project Only permissions to the User or Group:

  1. On the navigator tree, click on the arrow beside your project, this will reveal the Users and Groups folders under the project.
  2. Click the arrow beside the Users or Groups folder, this will reveal the Users or Groups assigned to the project.
  3. In this area Double click the User or Group you need to apply Project Permissions to.
  4. Edit the permissions tab that appears.
  5. Click Save to apply the permissions.
