Permissions Associated with Load Privileges

Effective in version 9.6.1 HotFix 3, permissions control which resources that users can access on the
Load
tab as well as the
Browse
tab. A user with any privilege in the Load privilege group requires permissions to perform actions on a particular resource. For example, to load a resource, a user needs Load Resource privilege and write permission on the resource.
After you upgrade to or apply 9.6.1 HotFix 3, you must verify permissions for each user that has privileges in the Load privilege group. If a user does not have the appropriate permissions on a resource, the user cannot view, load, or manage the resource.
The following table lists the privileges and permissions required to manage an instance of a resource in the Metadata Manager warehouse:
