The "Permissions" panel shows the defined role permissions. It also allows you to add new role permissions and edit existing ones.

Adding New Role Permissions

1. In the "New Role Permissions" panel, select a role to set permissions for.

2. Select an action from the drop-down menu. The following actions are available:

  • Read
  • Write
  • Delete
  • Authorize

3. Select whether to allow or deny the action.


"Deny" permissions have a higher priority than "Allow" permissions. Essentially, this means that a "Deny" permission always overrides an "Allow" permission assigned to a role.

4. Click on the "Add Permission" button.

5. A new permission appears in the "Defined Role Permissions" list.

Editing Role Permissions

1. Existing permissions can be changed by selecting and or deselecting the relevant check-boxes in the "Defined Role Permissions" list.

2. After editing the permissions, click on the "Apply All Permissions" button to save the alterations.
