Permission Groups

Estimated reading: 3 minutes 154 views

An access control list (ACL) is a mechanism that allows or denies access to resources, such as Clients, Projects and Billing based on a set of rules defined by an administrator. It is a security feature used to restrict access to sensitive data and prevent unauthorized access.

A checkbox typically represents a permission that can be granted or denied to a User or Position. When the checkbox is enabled, it indicates that the User or Position has been granted the corresponding permission to view the resource. If the checkbox is disabled, it indicates that the User or Position has been denied that permission and will not be able to view the resource.
