Setting custom table permissions

Only users with the Global administrator privilege level can create a new custom table or modify an existing custom table. Other users can access custom table data. By modifying permissions, you can control which users and roles can read, create, modify and delete custom table data. You can configure the permissions for custom table data on two levels: 

  • For all custom tables belonging to the current site (globally)
  • For a particular custom table

Custom table permissions

You can set the following permissions for custom table data:

PermissionDescription

DeleteAllows members of the selected roles to delete custom table items in the Custom table data application.
