View inherited permissions on objects

Your Adobe Workfront administrator can grant you access to view or edit objects when assigning your access level. For more information, see Grant access to projects.

Along with the access level that users are granted, you can also grant them permissions to specific objects that you have access to share. For more information about access levels and permissions, see How access levels and permissions work together.

Objects inherit permissions from parent objects inĀ Adobe Workfront.

For information about the hierarchy of objects in Workfront, see Understand objects in Adobe Workfront.
