A permission determines the level of control for a task. For example, do you want users in a role to add, edit, and delete data, or only add and edit data? These actions are controlled by permissions 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.

Tip: New to security? To understand feature areas, their roles, and how the level of access is determined for a user, see Role-based Security Overview.
