Assigning Core Administration Permissions

You can use the Core Administration Permissions to customize a role so that it behaves almost like the Administrator role, while also restricting access to other areas of NetSuite using the role permissions and restrictions. For example, with Core Administration Permissions you can create a role specifically for an IT administrator who is responsible for the general administration of the system, but who should not have access to sensitive employee information.

The Core Administration Permissions feature is enabled on your account by default. For more information, see Core Administration Permissions.


Use caution when assigning Core Administration Permissions to a role, because the role will become similar to the standard Administrator role in terms of exclusive administrator privileges.
