Understanding Webtrends User Rights

When you configure rights for a user or role, Webtrends provides three different types of rights: action rights, profile rights, and template rights. Selecting these rights defines the permissions granted to a user or role.

Action rights are designed to control access to functionality. Profile and template rights provide access to the data and reports contained in specific profiles and templates.

Webtrends user rights are cumulative, and greater rights grant implied access to lesser ones. For example, granting Create rights also grants View, Edit, and Delete rights. Similarly, if you have only View rights to all profiles through the Action Rights dialog, you can still be granted Edit rights to any specific profile in the Profile Rights dialog.
