Value List Permissions

Access for viewing this value list and creating items to the list can be defined on the Permissions tab.

If the user does not have the permission to view the name of the value list, it is not available for selection in M-Files (for example, when you are creating a new search).

If the user cannot see the value list, the user does not have the permission to create items to it either. However, the user may have the permission to see the list without having the permission to create new items.
