This article provides information on creating user overrides to allow specific permissions to individual users, or restrict them from such access.
For particular users, you can create exceptions to permissions rules you have set up by creating user overrides. When you create a user override, you might be broadening a user's access, but you could also be limiting it, for example, blocking administrative abilities for the user. To grant a particular set of permissions to an individual, you create a user override. An override can be used if:
- A user requires a particular set of permissions for a place but is not (or should not be) a member of a user group to which you have already assigned access.
- A user is a member of a user group to which you have assigned permissions for a place but requires a different level of access than that received as a member, i.e., if the person is an exception to the rule. For example, you might want to separately define the user permissions to enhance or limit their access to the place.
To create a user override, on the permissions' page for a place:
- Under User Overrides, click Create a user override.
- In the search box, start typing the name of the user for whom you want to set the override, and click it when you see it show up.
- Click Set Override to view the permissions you can assign.
- In the available permissions dialog box, select desired checkboxes to assign the required level of access to the user.
- Click Set Permissions to save the override you have created.
The desired user gets the configured special permissions.
