Explaining the Permission Structure

The permission structure is hierarchical, so that assigning access in a folder (e.g. Root), diffuses down to all Folders/Subfolders/Entries beneath it (see example in next section).

Simply assign user/role access to the highest level of folder tree, and the permission will automatically spreads downwards to the whole subtree underneath, providing access to all subfolders and all credentials within those folders.

Administration Role: Since the default Admin user is assigned the powerful Administration Role on the Root folder, it will have access to everything below it, until the permission inheritance is manually Blocked, see above link for more details.

User Role: By default users are given the User role. Providing access to this role is giving access to everyone.
