To assign permissions to
users over assets in the console gives users the logical
permissions over the assets. To successfully perform a task on an
asset the user must also have the physical permission over the
asset in the network.
If a user has permission
to collect data from an asset but does not have the credentials on
the physical asset, the data collection task fails.
For example, if a user is
assigned the Evaluator permission over a computer, but is not given
the required credentials to query the computer to collect data, the
user cannot run the evaluation.
