Deprecating Group Membership and introducing more powerful permission controls in the Mission Control Portal
10, May 2021
We're making changes to how permissions are managed within permission groups in the Mission Control Portal.
Previously, the Group Membership option under Organization Management allowed sub-users to add or remove members from permission groups.
This Group Membership functionality is being deprecated and replaced by a more powerful Permission Group Management functionality.
If a permission group has the Permission Group Management permission set to Modify, then users in that permission group will be able to create and manage new and existing permission groups, as well as add and remove users from permission groups. This can be considered an admin-level permission, as it allows users in this group to grant any user, including themselves, any number of permissions.
If a permission group has the Permission Group Management permission set to Read-only, then users in that permission group will be able to see all permission groups, their permissions, and users in those groups.
How might this affect my account?
When this change takes effect, all existing permissions granted under the Group Membership functionality will be revoked. Customers wishing to allow sub-users to add and remove other users from permission groups will need to grant those sub-users modify permissions under Permission Group Management, which will also give those sub-users permissions to create and manage permission groups.
When will this change take effect?
This change will take effect on Monday, May 17th, 2021.
Please contact our support team by chat in the Mission Control Portal if you require assistance managing your organization's permissions in light of this change.
