Set permissions for a storyboard
By setting permissions for a storyboard, you define the level of access that groups or users have for the storyboard.
When setting permissions, consider the following rules:
User-level permissions take priority over group-level permissions.
Example: If a user is allowed to edit a storyboard, but at the same time, this user is a member of a group that does not have the permission to edit, the user will still have the capability to edit the storyboard.
The most restrictive permissions take priority when a user belongs to several groups at the same time.
Example: A user belongs to both groups, Group A and Group B. Group A can edit the storyboard, but Group B does not have this permission. The user will not be able to edit the storyboard.
