Permissions allow users to perform tasks within a folder. With folder permissions, you can control user access to the folder and the tasks you permit them to perform.
Folder permissions work closely with privileges. Privileges grant access to specific tasks, while permissions grant access to specific folders with read, write, and execute access. Folders have the following types of permissions:
Read permission. You can view the folder and objects in the folder.
Write permission. You can create or edit objects in the folder.
Execute permission. You can run or schedule workflows in the folder.
When you create a folder, you are the owner of the folder. The folder owner has all permissions on the folder which cannot be changed.
