Permissions and Roles


In this portion we will discuss permissions are handled in BluSKY and how they can be combined together for easy assignment to people based on their duties in BluSKY.


Permissions are granted through the use of a Role. It is very important to the security of your Facility to limit permissions within BluSKY. By being selective over permissions you are protecting people's information as well as increasing the security of the system. You can learn more about permission by checking out our BluSKY Permissions article.
