Use this index to locate the article on how to manage a specific permission. Most permissions are managed through the user interface for an object, project, or collection. Other permissions are managed by adding users and groups to a role.

Note

You can manage permissions through a command line tool or REST API. Some permissions are only managed through these tools. To learn more, see Security and permission management tools and Security namespace and permission reference.
