Functional Area Permissions (Master Data Services)
You can assign permission to each of the functional areas of the Master Data Manager user interface (UI). There are five functional areas:
User and Group Permissions
When you assign permission to a functional area, you are making an area of the UI visible to the user or group.
Within the Explorer functional area, additional permissions assigned to model objects and hierarchy members determine which data a user can access. Within all other functional areas, a user must be a model administrator to view a model and act on it. For more information, see Administrators (Master Data Services).
A user or group must have permission to at least one functional area and one model on the Models tab in order to access Master Data Manager.
