A permission determines the level of control for a task. For example, should users in a role be able to add, edit, and delete data, or only to add and edit data? Permissions control actions in one of two ways:

  • Customize roles by selecting individual permissions options for tasks, such as View and Add/Edit.

  • Combine tasks and permissions to determine security. For more information, see Manage tasks and permissions to limit access.

To learn about feature areas, roles, and how a user's level of access is determined, see Role-based Security Overview.
