You can manage access permissions for users, groups, web service profiles or objects. To configure permissions, select a user, a group, a web service profile or an object from their respective screen, hover over it and click Permissions.

Permissions on users

To configure user level permissions to various objects of your account, hover over the user’s name and click on Permissions.

On the Permissions screen the user’s permissions to various objects are displayed in two columns. The user will have that specified permission on an object if either column is checked. The Allow column is specific to this user and can be enabled or disabled on this screen, while the Inherit column shows the permissions received based on the groups the user belongs to. To remove group-level permissions the user must be removed from the corresponding group.

You can perform bulk changes to permissions across an entire App or object type. For instance, you can modify permissions to all DataPages inside an Account, App, or Folder at once. If a particular permission setting is mixed for objects in a category, you may see a blue squared checkbox. The appearance of the checkbox varies across operating systems.
