The repository administrator or a user with Full permission on a document or folder can grant permissions on it. Permissions can be granted on the repository root, folders, and models, but not on individual model diagrams or objects.
List - View the document or folder in the repository browser and in search results. Without this permission, the folder or document is hidden from the user.
Read - Also open and compare documents.
Submit - Also propose changes to the document for review by a user with Write permission.
Write - Also review changes by other users and publish changes directly.
The Effective Permissions column shows the highest level of permission that each user or group has either directly or via a group.
When you create a folder or check in a model or project, the permissions defined on its parent are propagated to it. However, subsequent changes made to the permissions for the parent are not applied to its children unless you click this tool. For example, if a you grant Write permission on the Major Project folder, to the Development Team 2 group, then they will not automatically be granted Write access on its contents.
