Changing Permissions for Specific Users in Entitlement Manager

Updated

To protect sensitive data from loss, tampering, and exposure, permissions must be assigned correctly. If permissions are assigned incorrectly or if some users have more permissions than they need, administrators can change the permissions.

You can also add a new user and allow or deny permissions for the new user.

  1. From the navigation pane, go to Activate.

    The Activate page appears.

  2. Under File Storage Optimization, click Entitlement manager.
