User Group Permissions

Note: Users that belong to the OPERA Supervisor group, are NOT allowed to have permissions granted or revoked.

The User Group Permissions screen allows you to assign or revoke permission belonging to user groups and to "embed" user groups (along with associated permissions) into other user groups. When users are associated with a user group, they "inherit" the permissions of the user group. Should additional permissions be required for the user at a specific property, the additional permissions can be granted beyond the ones already granted from the user group using the User Permissions screen.

To grant/revoke permissions belonging to the user group, users must have the Setup Config>Grant Revoke Permission. The application parameter General>Grant Individual Permissions can be either active for inactive for assigning permissions to User Groups.

Workflow Overview

To assign permissions to user groups, select Configuration>Setup>User Configuration>User Groups.
