The permissions dictionary is an overview of the permissions and what components of SolarWinds N-central are enabled and available to the user. The Manage configuration enables the user to perform a task and a Read-Only configuration only allows the user to see the information or feature and not perform any action or task.
See also the topic Permissions and menus to see what menus appear in the navigation pane when features are enabled.
