Permissions in the Policies Feature
For TD accounts with the Policies feature, you click Users > Policies > Show All Permissions to view permissions that are associated with account users. You cannot assign permissions to users in this view.
To assign users to permissions, you click Policies. You create policies that specify permissions. You then assign users to policies. Policies are collections of permissions.
You can specify users access level to databases in the account.
- Import Only - can run import jobs against any database in the account
- Query Only - can view and run queries against any database in the account
- Full Access - can perform any operation on databases in the account
The access levels for database mimic ‘read & write’, ‘read’, and ‘write’ permissions.
On the My Settings > Database page, all users can specify permissions for databases that they have created. Only account owners and administrators can specify permissions for any database in the account.
Workflows and Audience Studio
Only account owners and administrators can view and specify permissions for Audience Suite and Workflows. For details on how permissions affect user actions in TD workflow, refer the matrix. The matrix lists actions - both in TD Console and with commands on the CLI in TD toolbelt - that are controlled by permissions.
In the Permissions without Policies version, click a User view, and then click the Permissions tab. If you have the Policies feature, click Policies and go to the Permissions tab.
Users must be assigned specific permissions in the following areas:
You can specify users access to workflows and master segments. Workflow permissions are standard. Master segment permission are only for accounts that include Audience Studio.
Workflows: ability to view, edit workflows and run workflows.

- Run - run all user-defined workflows. Select View to also view list of all workflows.
- Edit - create and edit all user-defined workflows. Select View to also view list of all workflows. Select Run to run any user-defined workflow.
If no permission is selected, then users in the policy do not have any workflow permissions.

|Permissions specified control workflow activities in TD console and the TD toolbelt command-line interface.|
Master Segments: For accounts that include the Policy feature and Audience Studio.
