Set Up Single Permissions

You can set specific user permissions from the User Permissions dialog.

Specific user permissions are added to permissions from group membership to provide an overall permission set.


You must have Security - Manage Users permission to assign permissions to users; the initial Admin administrator automatically has this permission.

To set up single permissions for a user follow the steps below:

  1. Select the Project | Security | Manage Users menu option. The Security Users dialog displays.
  2. Click on the Single Permissions button. The User Permissions dialog displays.
    User Permissions
  3. Select the checkbox against each specific permission to apply to this user. Click on the Select All button to select all permissions for the user, or click on the Deselect All button to clear all selected permissions.
  4. Click on the OK button to assign the selected permissions to the user.


  • A user's total permissions are those granted by Group Membership plus those granted by specific permission assignment.
  • You can transport these user permissions between models, using the Export Reference Data and Import Reference Data options on the Tools menu.
