Changing the data access permissions for a user or group account


As a user with the administrator role, you can change the data access permissions associated with a user or group account. For a user account, you do this on the Users page in the Tenant Management Console. For a group account, you do this on the Groups page.

You can make these changes to data access permissions for a user or group account:

Specify permissions for any number namespaces in a single operation

Change the permissions for an individual namespace for which the user or group account already has one or more permissions

Dissociate a namespace from the user or group account, thereby removing all permissions for that namespace

You can change the data access permissions associated with multiple group accounts in a single operation. For information on doing this, see Creating group accounts.

Specifying permissions for any number of namespaces


You associate data access permissions with a user or group account by first displaying a list of namespaces and then selecting the ones for which you want to specify data access permissions. After selecting the namespaces you want, you select the permissions you want the user or group account to have for those namespaces.

You can specify permissions for any number of namespaces in a single operation. If the user or group account already has permissions for any of the selected namespaces, the set of permissions you select replaces the set of permissions already associated with each of those namespaces.

To specify data access permissions for one or more namespaces:

1.In the list of user or group accounts on the Users or Groups page, as applicable, select the user account or group account you want.

2.Click on Assign Namespace Permissions.

The Find and Select Namespaces section lists all the tenant's namespaces. Namespaces for which the user or group account already has any permissions are marked with a checkmark ( NamespaceCheckmark.png ).

3.Optionally, filter the list of namespaces by name:

a.In the Find and Select Namespaces field, type a text string to use as a filter. This string can be up to 64 characters long and can contain any valid UTF-8 characters, including white space. It is not case sensitive.

b.Click on the find control ( FindControl.png ).

To redisplay the entire list of namespaces after filtering it, click on the clear filter control ( ClearFilterControl.png ).

4.For each namespace for which you want to specify data access permissions, click on the add control ( PlusControl.png ) to select the namespace. The namespace row turns green.

To select all the namespaces in the list, click on Select All.

To deselect a selected namespace, click on the remove control ( MinusControl.png ) for the namespace.

To deselect all the namespaces after selecting all, click on Clear.

5.In the Assign Data Access Permissions for Selected Namespaces section, select the permissions you want the user or group account to have for the selected namespaces.

Selecting Read automatically selects Browse. Selecting Search automatically selects Read and Browse. Selecting Purge automatically selects Delete.

To select all the permissions, click on Select all.

To deselect all the selected permissions, click on Deselect all.

For descriptions of the data access permissions, see Data access permissions.

b.In the next field, type the text string you want to use as a filter. This string can be up to 64 characters long and can contain any valid UTF-8 characters, including white space. It is not case sensitive.

c.Click on the find control ( FindControl.png ).

To redisplay the entire list of namespaces after filtering it, click on the clear filter control ( ClearFilterControl.png ).
