Managing Picklist Permissions

Picklist is integrated with Liferay’s permissions framework. This means you can assign application and resource permissions to user Roles to determine which users have access to the Picklists application and its data.

Assign Picklist permissions when defining Role permissions.

See Defining Role Permissions for more information about assigning permissions to user Roles.

Application Permissions

Application permissions grant permission to perform general application-related operations and do not include resource-related permissions.

Picklists has the following application permissions:

Resource Permissions

Resource permissions grant permissions on specific application resources. Some of these permissions enable performing operations on database entities (i.e., model resources). Others grant permission to perform resource-related operations in an application context (e.g., create a new resource entity).

The Picklists portlet has the following resource permissions.
