How to share resources

What are the different permissions?

Passbolt offers three permissions at the resource or folder level:

  • Owner: can manage share settings, delete, update, read.
  • Update: can update the record and delete.
  • Read: can only read and use the password metadata and secret.

A User with Update right is able to delete a resource. The main difference between Owner and Update right is the ability for the Owner to share a resource.
