When creating security profiles, what is the difference between the “Given” vs “Effective” column?

  • Given = This column reflects the access rights applied to the folder or file for the respective security profile
  • Effective = This column reflects actual access has been granted under the Given Rights tab. For example if the “given” right is inherit, the “effective” circle will reflect what rights the profile is inheriting i.e. view only, view and print, etc.
