Viewing specific user permissions for NetBackup user groups

The permissions that are granted to each of the NBU user groups correlate to the name of the authorization object. The NBU default user groups include the NBU_Operator, NBU_Admin, NBU_SAN Admin, NBU_User, NBU_Security Admin, and Vault_Operator.

Due to the complexities of interdependencies between resources, in some places it is not possible to map access to a resource or to a single permission. There might be multiple underlying permissions across resources that need to be evaluated to make an access check decision. This mix of permissions can cause some discrepancies between resource permissions and resource access. This possible discrepancy is mostly limited to read access. For example, a Security_Admin might not have permissions to list or browse policies. The administrator needs access to policies as they contain client information that is required to configure security for clients.
