Permissions and Restrictions

Note that users with create or full permissions to a restricted record type are able to create and submit new instances of that record type. However, these users are not able to view these newly created restricted records. In other words, users cannot view records to which they are restricted, regardless of their permissions and levels.

Permissions and Restrictions Example

As the manager of a team of employees your role might be granted the View access level for the Employees permission. This level would enable you to view, but not edit, all employee records.

In addition, a restriction might be applied to your role so you can only access employee records of members of your team.

Permissions are generally assigned to roles, and apply to users to which roles are assigned. If the global permissions feature is enabled, permissions can also be assigned to employees, independently of roles. For details about NetSuite permissions, see NetSuite Permissions Overview.

Restrictions are defined on roles, and apply to users to which roles are assigned. The following types of restrictions are available:

For instructions for setting restrictions on a role, see Customizing or Creating NetSuite Roles.

You can audit assigned permissions through searches of role and employee records. You can audit assigned restrictions through searches of role records.
