Users are granted permission to specific items in GRC Cloud. Permissions may extend or cascade along the Manage By hierarchy to provide visibility to other items, unless they’re overridden by workflow permissions.
An anchor point refers to the point or item along the hierarchy where the user was originally given permissions.
Note: Only administrators can view anchor points.
To anchor a user in the hierarchy:
- Select an item in the hierarchy and click on the Permissions tab.
- Click Add Users/Groups.
- Select the correct role and find the user under Select Users and Groups. Once selected, the name will be displayed in the gray box with an X next to the name.
- Click Save.
The user is now shown in the Permissions tab. The trash can to the right of the User/Group Name indicates the anchor point.
If you impersonate the user, the item you gave permissions to will be visible.
