Assign User Permissions to a User

Introduction

This topic describes the user permissions that you can apply to a user.


User Permissions

When you are creating a user, you can choose which accounts, reports, and application functions that they will have access to. The user permissions will only apply to the user you are creating or modifying.



For this topic, we are using an AWS account as an example. To select the user permissions for another cloud provider, click the corresponding tab.

Select the check box next to the user permission that you want the user to have access to. See the table for details.
