You assign privileges to users and groups for application services. You can assign different privileges to a user for each application service of the same service type.
You assign privileges to users and groups on the Security tab of the Administrator tool.
The Administrator tool organizes privileges into levels. A privilege is listed below the privilege that it includes. Some privileges include other privileges. When you assign a privilege to users and groups, the Administrator tool also assigns any included privileges.
