Tidbits

  • In order to give a user permission to Data Import a file, the user must have access permissions to DocType File for `read`, `write`, and `create`.
  • Role Profiles automatically update individual user's set of roles whenever one updates the Role Profile itself
  • If a user is locked to a particular Role Profile, they cannot be assigned a different role that is not under the same Role Profile
  • Permission levels (aka "perm levels") for fields are numerical. This can be interpreted as being hierarchical levels, where a higher number would encompass or have authority over lower / smaller number levels. This is not true. Instead, one should think of perm levels simply as groupings. If the perm level of a field is 5, then only users who have perm level = 5 can access this. If the field level is 4 and the user only has perm level access 5 for that DocType, then too bad for that user.
