Permissions for Inbound ASN Automation

Important:

If you upgrade the Inbound ASN Automation SuiteApp from version 1.0.0 to version 1.1.0, the existing Inbound ASN Automation permissions may get deleted. You must reassign the Inbound ASN Automation permissions to your custom or standard roles to be able to use the SuiteApp.

The Inbound ASN Warehouse Manager role has been created with the required permissions for the SuiteApp.

You can either use the Inbound ASN Warehouse Manager role or assign the required permissions to any existing roles in your organization. The following table describes the minimum access level for permissions required to use the SuiteApp. If a higher access level for any of these permissions is set for a role, there is no need to change the level.
