Permissions Overview

Permissions Overview

You manage user security with privileges and permissions. Permissions define the level of access that users and groups have to an object.
Even if a user has the privilege to perform certain actions, the user may also require permission to perform the action on a particular object.
For example, a user has the Manage Services domain privilege and permission on the Development PowerCenter Repository Service, but not on the Production PowerCenter Repository Service. The user can edit or remove the Development PowerCenter Repository Service, but not the Production PowerCenter Repository Service. To manage an application service, a user must have the Manage Services domain privilege and permission on the application service.
You use different tools to configure permissions on the following objects:
