Before a user's permission can be set they must first have an account within Core Data. To create an account for a user, the institutional Data Manager must upload account information for the user through Data Management.

Once an account has been created for a user, a Site Administrator or Admin can then go to Users to search for a user by first and last name or by username to bring up their account. The Site Administrator or a user with permission level of Admin can then set permissions for the user as either an Admin, Creator or Viewer, see below for a description of each permission level.
