Definitions of permission states

For each role, you can specify which permissions are granted, not granted, or denied. You set these permissions on the Settings > User roles and permissions page.

These states have the following meanings.

  • Granted - indicated with a check mark Check mark icon for Granted. Explicitly grants permission to perform this particular function as long as none of the user's other roles explicitly denies permission.
  • Denied - indicated with an "X" X icon for Denied. Explicitly denies permission to perform this particular function, regardless of any other of the user's roles which might grant permission.
  • Not granted - indicated with a circleCircle icon for Not granted. Does not explicitly grant nor deny permission to perform a particular function. If this permission is not explicitly granted by any of a user's roles, the user is not allowed to perform this function.
