List of permissions

Permission types

When creating or editing a permission set in More > Permission Sets > New / Edit > Functionality there is a list of all available permissions. ESET PROTECT Cloud Web Console permissions are divided into categories; for example, Groups & Computers, Policies, Client Tasks, Reports, Notifications and so on. A given permissions set can allow for Read, Use or Write access. In general:

Read permissions are good for auditing users. They can view data but cannot make changes.

Use permissions allow users to use objects, run tasks, but not modify or delete.

Write permissions allow users to either modify respective objects and/or duplicate them.

Certain types of permissions (listed below) control a process, not an object. That is why they work on a global level, so it does not matter which static group is the permission applied on, it will work regardless. If the process is allowed to a user he can use it only over objects for which he has sufficient permissions. For example, the Export report to file permission enables the exporting functionality, however data contained in the report are determined by other permissions.
