Map Permission Roles to Projects


Map Permission Roles to Projects

You can map users and user groups to a permission role for a specific project from its Manage User Permissions dialog box. This allows you to assign users permissions for that project, including managing and browsing the project and some related objects.

Note: the Manage User Permissions screen only grants users and groups permissions for the object you are currently editing (i.e., for the selected project). If you want a user or group to have permissions that apply across all of Kion's objects, you'll need to change the Global Permissions User Mapping.

To access the Manage User Permissions menu:

  1. In the left navigation menu, click Projects > All Projects.
  2. Click on the ellipsis menu on the project's card and select Manage User Permissions.
  3. Use the Users and Groups dropdowns to select and deselect the users and groups to manage and browse this project and objects associated with it. For more information about what these permissions grant, see the Permission Types article.
  4. Click Save.


The Manage User Permissions screen allows you to change the user and user groups assigned to each role for this project. To change the permissions for a role, you can see the Edit a Permission Scheme article. The permission scheme you see here is the one that was set for the project; to set a different permission scheme for this project, see the Edit a Project article.

Users can be granted permissions at various origin points. You can learn where each user was granted their permissions using the permissions explorer, which allows you to view origins by user or by permission. To do this, click on the project's name in the list and click the Permissions tab. Then select a user, permission, and role to see the permission's origin. You can also click the By Permission tab to select a permission, user, and role to see its origin.
