View Access Request Security (6.2.1 and beyond)

The User Access Requests list page shows all pending elements to which individual Users have requested Permission to Access.  This page is visible to all Admins and Power Users.  In 6.2.1, Security has been added to this feature.  Power Users may grant access only if he/she has Edit Access to the element.

The path to reach this list page varies :

  • Admins:  Admin > Users & Groups > Requests tab
  • Power Users:   Admin > User Access Requests entry
