Inherited Privileges

Inherited Privileges

A user or group can inherit privileges from the following objects:
  • Group. When you assign privileges to a group, all subgroups and users belonging to the group inherit the privileges.
  • Role. When you assign a role to a user, the user inherits the privileges belonging to the role. When you assign a role to a group, the group and all subgroups and users belonging to the group inherit the privileges belonging to the role. The subgroups and users do not inherit the role.
You cannot revoke privileges inherited from a group or role. You can assign additional privileges to a user or group that are not inherited from a group or role.
The Privileges tab for a user or group displays all the roles and privileges assigned to the user or group for the domain and for each application service. Expand the domain or application service to view the roles and privileges assigned for the domain or service. Click the following items to display additional information about the assigned roles and privileges:
  • Name of an assigned role. Displays the role details on the details panel.
  • Information icon for an assigned role. Highlights all privileges inherited with that role.
Privileges that are inherited from a role or group display an inheritance icon. The tooltip for an inherited privilege displays which role or group the user inherited the privilege from.
