This option is good if you are simply trying to figure out what permissions you can assign to FOLIO staff users through the UI.

  1. Go to Settings → Users → Permission Sets
  2. Click the +New button in the top right of the third pane.
  3. Give the permission set a name (required)
  4. Give the permission set a description (optional)
  5. In the "Assigned Permissions" Accordion, click "Add Permission". The Select Permissions modal will appear.

  7. Click "Save & close".
  8. Click "Save & close" again to fully create your permission set.

Option 2: Use an API call

This option is best if you are wanting to dig deeper into the FOLIO permissions and see subpermissions or other permissions that are normally hidden in the user interface.

To get a full list of permissions, use an API call to your instance of FOLIO: GET /perms/permissions
