Permissions

User permission configuration and how the permissions relate to central server users.

Updating settings🔗

Permissions are configured on a per user basis, and this is done on the central server. See the central server documentation for an explanation of how to do this.

Settings available🔗

The following table lists the area and name of the permissions in the central server which are of relevance to Open mSupply. In the table, the description explains where this permission might be used in omSupply and why you may need to enable it.

In addition to these specific permissions, you'll need to ensure that the user has access to the store(s) which they'll be working in.
