The options directly above the grid are for public folders, meaning any folder that hasn't been assigned a security group will be assigned those rights. They also act as the most basic permission you can assign because they are needed in order to allow permissions for each of the security group listed below, when they are not checked the corresponding column of the grid is grayed out.

 

The public Add permission also displays the Deny add entry in root folder. This folder is named Sessions in your tree view and is in fact virtual, we created this option so you could control which users could create entries at the root.

ShieldWarning48x48

For higher security, its a best practice to set security groups on all the root level folders. This ensures there are no public folders and that you have good control over the activity in your system.

 

All security groups are listed in the grid, and you can assign permissions using the corresponding columns.

Granting the View permission does allow the right to also launch/open the sessions of that group.
