Manage a permission set¶
You can view the details of your permission set in the tab Permission sets.

If the permission is assigned to a user, you can not delete it. You need first to un-assign it from all the users who have it.
You can edit all the details of the permission set. If you rename it, you don’t need to re-assign it to the users who already have the original one.
You can create a new permission set with pre-filled data from the original one.
If you click right on a permission set’s card, you can export it as a JSON file. Permission sets can be imported with the blue button next to the button Create permission set.
It is useful if you want to retrieve the permission sets of another instance.
