Assigning permissions from the Roles view

After you add a user or a group to a role you must grant permissions to folders and its objects. You cannot grant a user the permissions to a folder unless the user has been added to the appropriate role.

See Adding users and groups to a role.

When you assign permissions to a parent folder, the subfolders automatically inherit the parent folder permissions.

When you add a user to a role, the system automatically assigns permissions to any predefined folders.


There is a time delay for permissions to propagate through the directory.
