Assign tool permissions to users

Use Roles and Permissions to set what functionality is available to different users. Permissions correspond to tools in Brightspace Learning Environment and D2L products, for example, the ability to create discussion topics or edit an org unit’s navbar. You assign permissions to roles and then assign roles to users for specific org units. When a user accesses an org unit, they have access to the features set up for their role in that org unit.

Use Roles and Permissions to do any of the following:

  • Create, define, change, delete, and copy user roles.
  • Set user permissions around roles.
  • Import and export permissions.
