User Access window sample

  • The name of the folder or credential being modified is listed in the title.
  • Roles are surrounded by [ ] square brackets. Users don't have any decorations.


Inherited access rules cannot be deleted (those which were set on a folder higher up in the password tree). 

It is possible to add multiple rules for the same role or the same user. Those permissions will be combined together to create the effective permission.


Multiple same role rules

  • Subrole 1 is assigned both "Read-only" in one row and "Write-only" in another row. Effectively Subrole 1 has permissions for both Read and Write.


To add an access rule, click either the "Add Access for Role" or the "Add Access for User" button and then complete the form.

Note: When multiple permissions are defined for the same user or role, all of those permissions get added and combined together.
