Permissions and groups allow system users access to perform specified functions in the system.
A permission grants access to a specific task that can be performed in the system. Permissions cannot be created by system users or assigned to system users on an individual basis.
Groups are entities containing several permissions and are added to user accounts to grant them system access.
You can create groups and add permissions to them, or you can manage permissions and associate groups with them.
